Radio frequency (RF) system manufacturers are creating advanced new system designs to accommodate extremely restricted space constraints and rising operating frequencies in military avionics applications.
Don't let supply-chain disruptions knock your projects off schedule – navigate roadblocks and stay on track - BlogFebruary 09, 2022
In today’s unusually challenging environment, companies may need to look for workarounds to stay on track regarding supply chain and delivery. Some electronics companies are learning the hard way that supply-chain resilience is a critical qualification for doing business, whether in their own or in their business partners' and suppliers' operations. These lessons will change the way organizations consider procurement and production decisions for the future.
Military radio frequency (RF) systems must be designed to withstand the rigors of the often-harsh environments in which they will be used, while at the same time achieving extremely high performance for mission-critical applications. Low-smoke, zero-halogen, and phase-stable cable assemblies for these RF systems fulfill these high-reliability needs.

Radio frequency (RF) technology for avionics applications, both military and commercial, prioritizes weight reduction to increase fuel efficiency while also meeting stringent electrical and mechanical requirements for safety. Low loss, phase stability, and high performance in a shock-and-vibration environment require a balancing act to reduce size with careful evaluation of materials, constructions, and maintenance.
WALLINGFORD, CT — Times Microwave Systems, the preeminent brand in innovative RF and microwave interconnect assemblies, cables and connectors, introduces PhaseTrack Low Smoke (PTLS) microwave cable assemblies for shipboard applications. It provides exceptional phase temperature performance up to 85 ºC. This cable type has the same low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) jacket used on Times’ QPL M17 cables for easy cross-reference and qualification.
