New Interconnect Technology for Modern Soldier Systems

The reduction of interconnect cable size and weight is a primary goal of future soldier system design. Carry weights may be significantly reduced through the selection of lightweight microfilament EMI/RFI cable shielding. Both ArmorLite (microfilament stainless steel) and AmberStrand (metal- clad composite) shielding are widely used in wearable soldier equipment.


Lightweight EMI/RFI Braided Shielding Lightweight stainless steel ArmorLite™ and composite AmberStrand ® microfilament braid save pounds compared to standard QQ-B-575/ A-A-59569 copper braid

„„ Ultra-lightweight EMI/ RFI braiding „„ Microfilament stainless steel: 70% lighter than NiCu A-A-59569 „„ Outstanding EMI/ RFI shielding and conductivity „„ Reduce shielding weight up to 70% and more „„ Superior flexibility and "windowing" resistance: 90 to 95% optical coverage „„ 220,000 psi (min) tensile strength
