Connectors and cable systems

MIL-SPEC-compliant connector and cable systems

Soldiers need robust, secure and reliable equipment for military landing operations in tough and varying environmental conditions. The durability and performance of the circular connectors, cables and adapters carried are major criteria for successful missions. They are used in and between C4I systems and on-board electronics in mobile and stationary environments and have to hold up under demanding conditions.

Performance overview:

  • RoHS conformity
  • VG-compliant connectors and cables
  • Can be plugged in blind while wearing combat gloves
  • Interference-proof shielded cables
  • Copper-based cables
  • Fibre optic cable

The plus points

Electrical connectors for extreme conditions


The cables and connectors keep out water and dust, withstand salt fog, hold up to fluctuating pressures and the extended temperature range, and transmit signals reliably under heavy shocks and vibrations.


The special design ensures EMC compatibility. KNDS Deutschland Mission Electronic applies various civil norms and standards as well as MIL-SPECS for this purpose.


The surfaces of the MIL military round connectors are machined to achieve high corrosion resistance.


KNDS Deutschland Mission Electronic procures high-quality electrical connectors and cables for communication, data and signal transmission as well as power supply from reliable and proven suppliers and manufacturers.
