LONDON – Smiths Interconnect in London is introducing coaxial couplers in UHF to Ku-band for space satellites launch systems, and deep-space mission management, as well as for military ground, airborne and naval defence applications.
Designed to perform in assigned frequencies from UHF to Ku-band, Smiths Interconnect's coaxial couplers are tested to customer specifications and are space qualified using the company's Qualification and Test laboratory in Dundee, Scotland.
Space qualification testing routinely includes thermal shock and cycling, sine/random vibration, mechanical shock and, where appropriate, continuous waveform and peak power, critical power, and seeded multipaction.
Summary and qualification data reports are available to prospective customers. Smiths Interconnect's coaxial coupler components offer optimized electrical performance; environmentally robust shielding; connectors based on operating frequency and RF power; and internal terminations and resistors are analyzed to maintain reliability under fault conditions.
