Amphenol Aerospace is an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of military interconnect systems, specializing in ruggedized connectors, cables, fiber optics, assemblies and more. Amphenol has provided connector solutions that have served the military and defense industry for more than 75 years. Twenty first century problems require twenty first century solutions, and we offer extensive experience and a suite of Mil-Spec connectors and products optimized for twenty first century applications.

Military Applications

Armored and Tactical Vehicles


A revolution in ground combat vehicles is on the horizon. Militaries around the globe are designing new vehicles with electric powertrains and plan to retrofit existing vehicles into hybrids. Amphenol connectors are lightweight and capable of handling extensive power transfers required for electric mobility vehicles and EV infrastructure.

While the future of military ground mobility is hybrid and electric vehicles, Amphenol connectors remain a mainstay in gasoline-powered, legacy combat vehicle systems.

Jet Aircraft and Helicopters


As key features and avionics systems in military helicopters, jets and fighter aircraft become more sophisticated, so does the need for interconnect systems to deliver greater power and speed to meet the requirements of modern and future flight applications. Amphenol Aerospace has met that challenge for more than 75 years and will continue to pave the way with advanced aerospace interconnectivity.

Naval Ships

Today’s warfighter is more equipped than ever before. Modern soldier kit is evolving to feature heads-up displays, advanced communications equipment, various types of optics, and more. Amphenol connectors are built to keep this gear online and working efficiently in even the harshest environments.

Unmanned Vehicles 


Unmanned vehicles, from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs), unmanned surface vehicles (USVs), and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), are poised to conquer domains across land, air, and sea sooner rather than later. Amphenol connectors have the versatility to meet the requirements of unmanned applications operating in any space.

Missile Systems 


Today’s advanced missile armaments require precision guidance systems to deliver their payloads accurately and efficiently. Amphenol interconnect systems are optimized for the extensive data transmissions that take place within modern missiles and guided munition systems during flight.

Military systems must remain operational and dependable in the face of severe circumstances. Much like the systems they’re designed for, Amphenol interconnect products are ruggedized, optimized for performance and endurance in the world’s harshest environments, and engineered to achieve consistently exceptional performance.
