Theatres of conflict are among the most demanding environments on the planet. Whether fought in the sweltering deserts of the Middle East, the relentless oppression of a fiercely humid jungle or the torrid waters of a raging ocean, it's imperative that all equipment used in such settings is up to the task. Here at Interconnect Systems, we understand better than most the harsh conditions that our apparatus needs to stand up to – let's take a look at the why, how and where.
Interconnect components – the best of military engineering
It's essential that tanks, jets and ships have the applicable cabling and connectors in place.
Today's modern tanks, battleships and fighter jets are all state-of-the-art when it comes to technical specifications and overall conflict-ready ability, but all of these advancements count for nothing if their connectors or cabling are damaged. Indeed, a faulty or ruined connector could halt even the most sophisticated tank in its tracks, rendering it useless and prone to hostile attacks.
Though cables and connectors may often be overlooked by the casual observer, they're vital for the proper functioning of a vast array of military equipment. As such, it's essential that tanks, jets and ships have the applicable cabling and connectors in place – otherwise, the vehicle is liable to fail when faced with the extreme pressure of a conflict situation or environment.
Here's another way to think about it. An internet-based business could not operate without high-speed ethernet cables keeping everything connected, so why should military vehicles be any different? It's not just these kinds of products that require appropriate, rugged connectors and cables, either – the challenging conditions that oil rigs stand up to must also be up to the test. Let's examine how we at Interconnect Systems have developed some of the toughest components out there – and also the most efficient.
Efficiency and durability – the best of both worlds
At Interconnect Systems, our fibre optic cables are unmatched for purpose with regards to ground tactical equipment, avionics, oil, mining and other potentially hostile environments. Indeed, our fibre optic cable assemblies – from single, dual, multifibre and expanded beam – have the capacity to transmit enormous levels of data without compromising on durability. In days past, such fibre-optic cables were light, efficient and able to transfer vast amounts of data, but were also very expensive and pretty delicate – not ideal when being used in testing environments. Fast-forward to today, and fibre-optic cables are not only built to last, they won't break the bank, either.

We know the importance of reliability in the aforementioned environments – failure of any equipment could have devastating consequences. That's why each of our cable assemblies are put through rigorous testing – with supplied reports for your reference – and an Interconnect Systems Certificate of Conformance. You're in the safest hands possible with Interconnect Systems.
Resilient against other kinds of threats
It's not only soaring temperatures, pounding waves or natural threats such as salt and sand that our components need to withstand. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) which we touched upon in a recent article, is a very real hazard that can affect your equipment in an adverse way. Sometimes, EMI can be an innocuous occurrence as placing a microphone next to a speaker (resulting in that high-pitched, uncomfortable noise), but in others, it can be utilised for nefarious means.
Because of this, fibre optic cables are the go-to option for engineers across a range of industries – the protection they provide from EMI is far more effective than that found in standard copper-based cables.
Defence engineering – where reliability is paramount
As we talked about in a previous article, defence engineering technology simply has to be at the top of the tree when it comes to reliability, ruggedness, and efficiency. There is zero margin for error when it comes to defence engineering – even the slightest blip in its infrastructure can put any given country's national security at risk. Defence engineering is at the heart of what we do at Interconnect – with our raft of clients based in the defence sector, we've helped develop some of the most advanced systems that will not only last the test of time, but will function perfectly through it, too.

Even though there's no expense spared when developing our products, that doesn't mean that they cost the Earth for our customers. We'll work with our clients to come up with a solution that best suits their budget, without compromising on quality. Additionally, as we're constantly developing ever more sophisticated components, it means we're a little ahead of the game in the sector – our knowledge of cables and connectors is second-to-none, so we're always on-hand to lend advice on the best solution available.
Don't skimp on quality when examining your cabling and connecting needs. Be sure to get in touch with the experts at Interconnect Systems, who'll be happy to guide you through our portfolio of world-class solutions.
