Glenair Fiber Optic Connectors

MIL-DTL-38999 Type

Fiber Optic Interconnect Solutions - Section B

MIL-DTL-38999 type fiber optic interconnection systems are the recognized standard for all military and commercial aerospace applications that depend on high levels of connector reliability, environmental and mechanical performance and low dB insertion loss. Designed specifically for air and space, the Glenair MIL-DTL-38999 type fiber optic connection system has been successfully deployed in applications ranging from the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and the venerable F-22 to dozens of other fixed wing and rotary aircraft applications.

Opto-Electronic Interconnect Solutions for Aerospace and Other Harsh Environments

Harsh-Environment Photonic and Fiber Optic Technologies Enable Ethernet, Digital Video, High-Speed Data, and Signal Aggregation

Up to 10 Gbps and Beyond

Commercial and military avionic platforms, as well as In-Flight Communications and Entertainment Systems, Flight Displays, and Data Servers for aerospace applications increasingly rely on high-performance, harsh-environment opto-electronic (also known as Photonic) modules that convert electrical-to-optical and optical-to-electrical data streams at rates from 1 Gbps up to 10 Gbps and beyond. The harsh environmental requirements of commercial and military aerospace (temperature extremes, vibration and shock, EMI shielding, hermetic packaging and so on) are not adequately addressed by commercial-off-the-shelf fiber optic interconnects and transceiver/receiver assemblies. Many other applications also require opto-electronic modules that can operate in harsh environments including spacecraft, military ground vehicles, navy ships, above-ground and sub-sea oil and gas production plants as well as collider physics and nuclear plants.

The need for ruggedized photonic packaging in aerospace systems, as well as increased focus on reduced weight and small form-factor technologies, has led Glenair to develop a revolutionary new opto-electronic (photonic) product series that provides photonic transmitter and receiver functions, fiber-to-copper media conversion, and signal aggregation that can integrate directly into interconnect wiring systems. These harsh-environment interconnect technologies — leveraging MIL-DTL-38999 (M29504), Series 80 Mighty Mouse, GFOCA, ARINC 801, MIL-PRF-28876, MT and other high-performance connector technologies — reduce size and weight, and improve the performance of Ethernet, Video and High-Speed Digital in commercial and military avionic applications by leveraging the strengths of both electrical and fiber optic transmission media. Glenair offers both standard catalog solutions, as well as the integration of electronics or opto-electronics into rugged custom packages and cable assemblies per customer and application requirements.

MIL-PRF-28876 Shipboard

Fiber Optic Interconnect Solutions - Section J

The use of fiber optics in shipboard and ship-to-shore data transmissions is growing rapidly, and the tight-tolerance MIL-PRF-28876 interconnect has become the universal standard for Navy shipboard applications. Glenair’s qualified termini, connectors, backshells, and accessories deliver precise optical alignment, environmental protection and corrosion resistance.

QPL and Commercial High Performance Fiber Optic Termini

AS39029 QPL - Section C

Glenair Fiber Optic connection systems are well known throughout the aerospace and tactical military applications arena. Our fiber optic contacts are universally recognized to provide consistent performance with extremely low dB loss. We are the supplier of choice for some of the world’s most advanced fiber optic systems, including the revolutionary F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

Glenair offers the industry’s widest range of contacts for both Mil-Spec and proprietary fiber optic connection systems. These highly-available contact termini are guaranteed to deliver outstanding interconnection compatibility. Glenair manufactures fiber optic termini for every popular Mil-Spec and commercial high-performance interconnection system, including the multi-channel MIL-DTL-38999 Series III. Our fiber optic termini deliver optimal performance in both our own connectors as well as those produced by other manufacturers. In fact, our MIL-PRF-29504 qualified fiber optic termini are often selected as much for their outstanding interconnection compatibility as for their ability to boost the optical performance of third party connectors.
