Modern Weapon Systems

Count on mission-critical precision targeting with smaller, lighter, faster and more reliable sub-assemblies for missiles and warheads.

Missile Technology: Sophisticated Sensor Accuracy

Accurate missile flight-to-target requires heave-duty processing of sensor data from infrared and laser sensors, radars, and guidance systems. 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 missile sensors grows and systems use multiple sensors, the data they provide become more complex. Connectivity to handle the data is moving from Gigabit Ethernet to 10G In networking, while signal processing systems need to pack mode bandwidth into smaller packages.

Missile Applications

  • Radar
  • GPS
  • Data Links
  • Electro Optical
  • Infrared
  • Laser
  • Inertial measurement units

Warhead Technology: Mission-Critical Reliability

In warhead design, MIL-STD-1760 defines the electrical characteristics of the signals at the interface, as well as the connector and pin assignments of all of the signals used in the interface.


Our connectors are designed for quick and reliable release of the store from the warhead. Reliability is maximized with TE precision relays and timers to help confirm the payload is delivered on target.
