Accurate flight to target requires heavy-duty processing of sensor data from infrared and laser sensors, radars, and GPS. The control system must deal with such flight variables as phase of flight, type of interception, motion, heat detection, and proximity. As the sophistication of sensors grows and systems use multiple sensors, the data they provide becomes more complex. Connectivity to handle the data is moving from Gigabit Ethernet to 10G in networking, while signal processing systems need to pack more bandwidth into smaller packages.
Nanominiature circular and 0.025-centerline rectangular connectors combine extreme size and weight reduction with the highest levels of reliability and ruggedness. A common contact system used throughout the product family enhances long-term performance in difficult applications.

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.
