Missiles & Warheads

Mission-critical precision targeting with smaller, lighter, faster and more reliable sub-assemblies for missiles and warheads

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. 

Applications: Missiles

  • Radar
  • GPS
  • Data links
  • Electro optical
  • Infrared
  • Laser
  • Inertial measurement units


Mission-Critical Reliability

Maximize reliability with precision relays and timers to confirm the payload is delivered on target.

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 aircraft. Reliability is maximized with TE precision relays and timers to help confirm the payload is delivered on target.
