Smiths Interconnect was selected by a major global Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to supply connectivity solutions for a new air and naval tactical radio, offering faster transmission speeds, enhanced security and extended interoperability. Designed to deliver high levels of security, the tactical radio can communicate precise information in a highly-secured environment. Smiths Interconnect’s customer needed to integrate more functions into a reduced space. Our high reliability spring probe contact technology was selected due to its small size and high performance which met the customer’s demanding technical requirements. Our spring probe contact technology allows high signal density, in a compact size, to be reached in a hi-tech electronic environment and is expected to be a key component for the space and defence.
