[Satnews] HUBER+SUHNER showcased their latest, state-of-the-art technologies designed specifically for the rigors of space at SATELLITE 2016, which occurred this week in National Harbor, Maryland.
On display were the latest in Ground Test and Space Flight hardware addressing both the traditional Space market as well as the needs of the evolving “NewSpace” segment. HUBER+SUHNER exhibited their high-capacity 16-Channel Multi-Coax Interconnect options for both Chassis and SMT PCB Mount options. These modular, high-density designs use SMPM and MXP connector interfaces combined with flight-proven microbend™ cable providing solderless bend to the end technology. All materials are MIL qualified and flight approved.
Also on display were the High-Performance Sucoflex 200 and 300 series cable assemblies offering up to 40 GHz performance and providing excellent phase vs. temperature stability combined with low loss in a mechanically robust lightweight construction.
Also, in 2015, HUBER+SUHNER Astrolab was designated as the Corporate Space Flight Center of Excellence. Representatives from HUBER+SUHNER Astrolab were also on-site at Satellite 2016 and met with customers and discuss new product developments as well as their planned launch of “Power Sub-Miniature” (PSM) high power connectors directly applicable to Space customers.
“State-of-the-art RF performance is a critical requirement in demanding environments, especially space,” said B.J. Lyman, Aerospace and Defense Market Manager at HUBER+SUHNER. “When pushing the limits of next-generation bandwidth and high-capacity, high-density systems are mission critical. Our products have the proven capability to meet all of your interconnect needs within the industry’s most challenging operating environments. Our portfolio of ECTFE-jacketed cables combine proven radiation hardness of up to 200MRad with the cutting edge performance of our high-velocity tape-wrapped PTFE dielectric cores and patented minibend technology."
