Mission Critical Interconnects
for Military, Defense and Aerospace
Smiths Interconnect is a global leader in the design, manufacture and supply of high performance interconnect solutions to the world’s leading commercial and military aerospace manufacturers of various naval, land and air systems and applications. From commercial airlines to new generation military aircraft, SMITHS INTERCONNECT interconnect solutions are used extensively on all Mil / Aero systems where reliability is absolutely mandatory. The interconnect system in Military and Aerospace applications must be able to withstand the rigors of environments where extreme shock and vibration as well as heat, dust, moisture and chemicals are prevalent.
Reliability in Space
From planetary rovers to space station, Smiths Interconnect meets the constantly increasing demands of all space applications. Their connectors have been put through and exceeded the rigorous testing of NASA involving extreme environmental conditions, which includes thermal excursions, corrosive atmospheres, excessive shock & vibration, and contact engagement and separation cycling. NASA subsequently issued an addendum to EEE-INST-002 that states the required use of “Basket of Wires” Smiths Interconnect technology and prohibits the use of tuning-fork and press-fit connectors in future space missions, given their inability to perform in extreme thermal environments.
The interconnect system in Space applications must be able to withstand the harshness of environments where severe shock and vibration, corrosive atmosphere, and intense thermal deviations are prevalent. SMITHS INTERCONNECT high reliability connector solutions provide insurance of continuous connection within such extreme conditions. The legendary Smiths Interconnect' technology is widely known for its resistance to fretting and immunity to severe shock and vibration.

Smiths Interconnect Technology in Oil & Gas Pipeline Inspections
The superior performance of Smiths Interconnect connectors along with the capability to customize solutions has made Smiths Interconnect the preferred supplier of interconnects for extreme environments. Experiences gained over the years in all business sectors to improve the engineered connector solutions for our customers have migrated to the oil & gas pipeline inspection industry. Intelligent Pipeline Inspection Gauges (PIGs) operate in extremely harsh conditions while moving down an oil or gas pipeline. PIGs encounter shock and vibrations, debris, temperature extremes and other environmental challenges, all of which can potentially compromise data and system integrity.
The Smiths Interconnect technology is known for 100,000+ mating cycles, immunity to shock and vibration, and providing a reliable and consistent connection in the harshest environments, which makes them ideal solutions.
