Comments off 901 Views0

Successful manufacturers in the United States understand that when working with either the government or the military there will be a certain amount of product customization required. This is particularly true when it comes to RF coax cable assemblies. To understand why government/military applications for cable assemblies are so specialized, it is important to know that a large percentage of cable assemblies are used for communication. Often it is vital that these assemblies are durable and fully-functional in the harshest conditions. Sometimes to achieve this…all that is needed is a tweak or slight adjustment to a standard assembly, while other applications may demand a high-performance custom design. But in either case, it is a mandate that every cable assembly meets stringent military specifications.

Examples of where Coaxicom cable assemblies are utilized within military communication is; radio, wireless and portable power. Radio is still the military’s lead horse in communication and has been for many years. Wireless allows for quick and reliable data exchange and portable power allows for efficient ways to power up equipment, even in the most remote areas.
