Comtran Cable has received official qualification from Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) to supply MIL-DTL-24643/59 cables to the United States Navy for use on US Navy vessels. Our DEFENSE-LINK™ Shipboard data cables have a 4-Pair 24 AWG braided shielded LSZH construction and are designed to handle the rigors associated with use on the high seas and in combat conditions.
After extensive testing, DEFENSE-LINK™ Shipboard data cables have passed M24643/59 requirements and are suitable for 1 Gb/s data rates.They are designed to withstand extreme heat and cold and exposure to seawater and operating fluids. A combination of materials science as well as electrical design allows a multitude of irradiated crosslinked products to be used in a variety of transmission circuits, including critical and non-critical communication throughout the ship, instrumentation, video, and surveillance. A well-designed shielding system prevents electrical coupling from power circuits, jamming equipment, and electromagnetic pulse (EMP). According to Bruce Sinnott, Director of Business Development, “The effort took over two years and encompassed efforts across five of our Marmon companies, including Comtran Cable, RSCC Wire & Cable, RSCC Aerospace & Defense, Gendon, and the Marmon Innovation and Technology Center. We are all proud to provide an invaluable service to our country’s defense.” Production of these cables is underway and more constructions are currently in development.
