New GPS-over-Fiber applications and SENCITY Shield among technologies on show

Leading international manufacturer of components and systems for optical and electrical connectivity, HUBER+SUHNER, will showcase its innovative solutions with military applications at AUSA 2016 – North America’s largest land power exposition and professional development forum.

Among these technologies will be HUBER+SUHNER’s Direct GPS-over-Fiber solution, which perfectly addresses the power supply challenges within a GPS system by making use of newly developed Power-over-Fiber technology. This new technology not only enables system improvements by eliminating all copper within the link, but also reduces the amount of hardware within the system by integrating the transmission functionality into the antenna.

“Our GPS-over-Fiber products are very well suited to a number of antenna remoting, signal distribution and other high-tech applications in challenging environments,” said BJ Lyman, Aerospace and Defense Market Manager at HUBER+SUHNER. “They perfectly suit the military, but can be used in scenarios as diverse as mines, subways, special-purpose vehicles and off-shoring infrastructures.”

HUBER+SUHNER will also be demonstrating its next generation airborne interconnect – Eacon – at the Washington show. The Eacon (EAsy CONnection) self-locking connector is a simple and easy to use solution that eliminates the need for lockwire/safety wire that can lead to potential foreign object debris (FOD) in an aircraft. It is a simple cable and connector solution for a flexible and fast field-termination of microwave cable assemblies without compromising high performance

Also on display is HUBER+SUHNER’s latest development in its SENCITY Shield range of broadband jamming antennas. SENCITY Shield was specifically developed to meet today’s challenging requirements for ECM missions in military and security applications. The low profile, shark fin design ensures low visibility while still providing exceptional electrical performance in terms of horizontal gain and high power capabilities. The latest incarnation – SENCITY Shield 10 – supports an ultra-broad frequency range of 600MHz to 10GHz.

“We are looking forward to showing visitors of AUSA 2016 what HUBER+SUHNER has to offer,” said Lyman. “We know that keeping one step ahead with the latest technologies is vital in the military space, and the products we have on display demonstrate that we are at the cutting edge.”

Exhibition visitors can see these solutions for military applications at HUBER+SUHNER Stand 6719 – part of the Swiss pavilion – at AUSA, Walter E. Washington Convention Centre, Washington DC, 3-5 October 2016.
