Airborne cable assemblies must withstand harsh environmental
hazards and still provide high quality RF microwave interconnects
over a long period of time. Cobham high performance cable
assemblies are designed specifically to survive these environments,
offering the optimum in electrical and mechanical performance where
failure is not an option.
MIL-T-81490 and MIL-DTL-87104 define a series of rigorous
requirements to be acceptable in Electronic Warfare (EW)
applications. Cobham performs 29 unique tests during
acceptance, including 65G vibration, -65° to 200°C at 70,000 feet,
and 100,000 flexures.
Cobham has been selected by major air carriers to satisfy
critical insertion loss and phase-match requirements for the
FAA-mandated Traffic-Alert Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) and
Secondary Surveillance (MODE-S) programs. TCAS cables
assemblies meet the same reliability and quality standards as EW
