Our solutions for tough operations

Military Fiber-Optic Cables and Connectors

Maximum demands are placed on mobility, reliability and ruggedness of the fiber optic cable connections in a military environment. Our BRUmil, BRUtough and BRUpowermil cables have been developed for the most varied uses under the harshest environmental conditions. Finished off with military connectors, on various reels with capacities for short cables up to extreme long cables (5 km), these cable assemblies are virtually unbeatable and guarantee a high level of availability combined with low life-cycle costs.

Military Cable Laying Service

Military Cable LayingThe reliability of a communication link depends ultimately on proper laying of the cable in the field. Benefit from our laying instruction training together with a large variety of useful accessories.

Lightning and Surge Protection

Lightning and Surge ProtectionThe aim is to protect both people and equipment under canvas against the dangerous effects of a lightning strike during a storm. Masts erected with ropes trap any lightning flashes and discharge them into the ground by way of earth spikes. The step voltage dangerous to animals and humans, which occurs in the vicinity of a lightning strike, is reduced to such an extent in the protection zone by using voltage-grading cables that there is no risk of harm to people. Due to the magnetic field that arises from a lightning strike, all metallic cables may conduct dangerous voltages. The central feed point CFP serves the purpose of coarse protection and eliminates those high voltages. All cupper cable inputs to the hardened equipment in the protected zone have to be protected by lightning protection filters.

Testing, Repair and Training

Maintenance and repair play an important part in ensuring the reliability of systems. Our range includes all the resources needed - everything from mobile, optical testing equipment to field-proven repair kits. We also have the necessary know-how to generate the maintenance and repair solutions required in a military environment. Together with our training courses, which are tailored to customer requirements, we create conditions to enable the best possible preventive and corrective maintenance.
