Today's global security challenges are subject to fundamentally different frameworks. The emergence of risks and threats, as well as their management, affect the global political security situation.

Applications with integrated C4ISTAR systems such as aircraft, satellites, ships and ground vehicles used by international forces collect immense information. Processing, analyzing and transferring this amount of data is an increasing challenge. The synchronization, bundling and distribution of the collected data can take place in specially equipped vehicles as well as container systems that can be quickly relocated. These systems create an infrastructure for emergency services within a very short time, even in the most remote regions.

Mobile command posts or FOB's (Forward Operation Bases) require scalable solutions that ensure data, signal or power transmissions. These military systems must be adaptable in all areas.

ODU offers an interface that is easy to use, extremely robust and scalable. It is specifically designed for users and manufacturers of military vehicles and their subsystems.

The ODU AMC® T Expanded Beam Performance interface is an advanced fiber optic solution offering high-end transmission characteristics over many mating cycles. Excellent optical performance remains unchanged even under mechanical stress and harsh environmental conditions.

The fiber optic cable assembly is available on a cable drum, ready for roll-out in the field.

The innovative ODU AMC® T connector's 3 in 1 locking mechanism, with separately sealed electrical and mechanical components, offers numerous advantages. The user can choose between three locking variants: Break-Away, Push-Pull or Thread-Lock.

The ODU AMC® Series T combines the advantages of a classic Expanded Beam solution, such as insensitivity to dirt, scratching and shock with the high-performance damping values of a physical contact (<0,3 dB).
Compared to conventional expanded beam technologies, 3 to 4 times the amount of optical fibers can be integrated in the same space.

The reliability and flexibility of the connector systems used, weight savings, robustness and ease of handling, can be vital in extreme cases, as can the secure transmission of high volumes of data.
