Part I : Vision Systems


Last month we introduced five common RF use cases. In this installment of our new RF Basics series, we will expand on vision systems. 



Where are they found?


These systems are found in:

  • Military airframe electronic warfare systems
  • Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
  • Ground radar
  • Anti-missile defense
  • Guidance systems
  • Aviation collision avoidance

What are Vision Systems?


Vision systems use RF signals to locate and identify potential threats, landscape features and more. In essence, these systems are the "eyes and ears" of many military vehicles. 

In these types of applications, amplitude and phase stability across temperatures and between cables are key to ensure the signal arrives from the antenna to the processor at the same time. 

Most Common Products for Vision Systems — and Why






PhaseTrack® cable assemblies are designed with a proprietary TF4® dielectric that does not have the abrupt shift in the phase over temperature. They provide the stability needed to ensure signal integrity. This flexible solution is available on 0.047" sizes and smaller.




These vapor-sealed, millimeter wave assemblies are highly ruggedized for severe environments. Currently used on the most advanced commercial and military platforms, the MilTech line can be customized to meet phase or amplitude matching requirements, and integrated phase adjustable trimmers, equalizers and many other options. 




These semi-rigid style products are the ultimate technology for phase sensitive systems in extreme conditions. The SiO2 dielectric technology provides stability over temperature, while its metallic jacket protects against the most extreme temperature and ambient conditions.

Product Spotlight: TCA Cables


Our TCA product line, including industry standard cables, modular connectors, tooling, and a pulling nose, improves installation efficiency, ensures optimal performance and improves safety. 


The lightweight, low-loss, high-temperature, highly flexible TCA cables meet all avionics’ critical electrical and mechanical performance requirements for applications including satellite communications, collision avoidance, navigation, and more, up to 12 GHz. 

Watch our new demo video!  Kevin Moyher, our product manager, shows how easy it is to terminate a TCA cable. 



The TCA line is very easy to terminate, but you don't have to take our word for it. Sign up to receive a FREE kit with sample cables, tools and connectors.

Cutting-edge Technology: Fractional Lasers



The technology behind manufacturing stunningly vivid television screens is also the unexpected force behind laser surgery and skin resurfacing: a CO2 fractional laser, powered by RF energy that is used to excite a mix of gas and produce an infrared laser. We recently partnered up with a fractional laser manufacturer to supply a cable for connecting the generator to the CO2 exciter.


Learn more about this application in our new Solution Times feature.

Upcoming Webinar The Challenges of High Power in RF Applications

Apr 15, 2021

02:00 PM ET

RF can be used to transmit power – such as in lasers, deposition equipment, physics test equipment, microwave ablation, industrial microwave ovens and MRI machines. Find out how we design products to accommodate these high-power scenarios.

Question and Answer

You Ask, We Answer


Q: Why should I consider a WSB boot in place of the adhesive lined ATUM shrink boot supplied with the connector? 


A: Both the WSB boot and the adhesive lined ATUM heat shrink boot are capable of sealing the back of the connector to IP-67. The ATUM boot does require a heat gun and a little bit of technique to melt the internal glue correctly. You must properly heat the entire ATUM boot to get the glue to flow and create a solid watertight bond. The dwell time to achieve this state is typically twice the dwell time required to just physically shrink the boot.


The WSB boot, on the other hand, simply requires just a drop of lubricant to slide the boot onto the cable and a second drop to engage the boot with the ribs in the back of the LMR® X-series connector. It is quick, consistent, and there’s no need to bring a heat gun to the job site.
