While the seeker/guidance section tracks the mission to target, the electronic control box performs the basic function of keeping the missile on track. Flight controls must monitor airframe dynamics and adjust flight parameters. Control systems deal with every section of the missile. They must be well protected against EMI, not only generated within the system but from external countermeasure sources. Increasingly, controls are distributed to bring intelligence closer to the sensors and actuators. Reliable, high-speed communications between various subsystems is critical.
DEUTSCH DTS Connectors
Our broad range of MIL-DTL-38999 and 38999-style connectors gives you more choice in shell sizes and materials, inserts for power, signal, and optical needs, filtering and EMI protection, hermetics and other special environmental sealing.
High-Speed Copper Cable
Complex computing systems require high-speed cable solutions. TE offers a wide range of high-speed protocols including Ethernet, Fibre Channel, IEEE 1394, USB, ESATA, PCI express and DVI, all targeted to improve reliability while driving down size and weight.
Our expanded beam optics design incorporates a ball lens into a ruggedized connector with outstanding reliability and ease of maintainability. Add in an armored cable for the perfect optical assembly package.
TE’s expertise in engineering resins, additive chemistry, EMI, and thermal materials allows strong, composite enclosures that reduce weight (up to 40% over aluminum), improve functionality, and provide a cost effective replacement for aluminum.
TE is helping designers create missile defense systems that are smaller, smarter, lighter, and more reliable. While a missile needs only to work once, every missile must be ready to perform flawlessly at a moment's notice. All subsystems must be reliable and easily maintainable to keep the missile mission ready.
