Land survey, aided inertial, backpack data cable

The mechanical cable assembly pictured is one of a series of interconnects used for power and data exchange on portable GPS surveying units.

The GPS backpacks require cable assemblies rugged and durable enough to withstand extreme conditions, from desert sandstorms to arctic blizzards. When this customer approached us, it was experiencing field failures with its existing cable assemblies. Cable assemblies went through a complete redesign. The result is a mechanical cable assembly that is less bulky, more flexible, aesthetically pleasing, highly reliable, and less expensive than the product it replaced.
