HUBER+SUHNER is Showcasing its RF Connectivity Portfolio at SATELLITE 2018

HUBER+SUHNER is exhibiting its connectivity solutions at SATELLITE 2018 from 13-15 March in Washington D.C.

HUBER+SUHNER’s presence at the SATELLITE show comes after a successful win in the aerospace sector, after the company was recently awarded a sole connectivity contract to support the manufacture and test of a high-profile space program with over 900 satellites. The award came after major technical developments in the sector, with HUBER+SUHNER undertaking extensive work in the evolving NewSpace market. Its unique offering sets it apart from its competition, with its ability to combine its traditional space qualifications with NewSpace challenges, such as the necessity to be cost effective and optimize qualification.

Displayed at the booth is the solderless bend-to-the-end Minibend space flight cable assembly solution. The truly flexible coaxial cable assembly allows for an unparalleled bend radius right at the end of the cable entry, eliminating the need for additional right-angled connectors. This feature reduces cost, whilst at the same time increasing flexibility and reliability.

Additionally, the company is displaying its designed and customized push-on connector, the SMP-SL, ideal for space and critical communication applications. With a guaranteed prevention of de-mating similar to a threaded connector, which holds high broadband frequency application from 100 MHz to 31 GHz. The SMP-SL is set apart from its competitors with no secondary process to engage lock during mating, solderless connector junctions to remove x-ray, and visual inspection of lock engagement.

Other new technologies featured at SATELLITE include the power subminiature (PSM) connector system. This new developed RF PSM connector allows users to handle industry standard TNC power levels in a 50% smaller and lighter SMA size envelope. SMPM based high density multi-coax connector solutions is also on display to demonstrate how the company will support miniaturization without sacrificing on performance and reliability.

SATELLITE 2018 visitors can view the Minibend space flight cable assemblies and other HUBER+SUHNER solutions at booth #2325. Visitors are also invited to attend the “Serving connected enterprises in remote regions: Industrial IoT and Automation” presentation in Hall 201, Tuesday 13 March at 1:45 PM where HUBER+SUHNER Astrolab Senior Applications Engineer - Spaceflight Hasteen Jobalia will serve as panel participant and speaker.
