Size, weight, and power (SWaP) are essential in modern military and aerospace applications. Amphenol 2M Connectors address your SWaP needs by providing a high-performance ruggedized connection with a significantly reduced size and weight profile compared to a standard-size D38999. Whether it's the stringent standards of the military, the demanding conditions of aerospace, or any domain where SWaP matters, 2M is the connector of choice across a multitude of applications.


Soldier-Worn Gear

Soldier-worn gear is swiftly evolving. Modern soldiers are now equipped with an array of sophisticated gadgets, from night-vision goggles and communication headsets to smart devices, power management systems, and wearable sensors. The 2M Connector series, with its micro-miniature design, ensures that these devices remain interconnected without adding undue weight or bulk, especially since the modern soldier can carry upwards of 120 pounds on missions.

Given the unpredictable and often harsh conditions soldiers find themselves in, it’s also crucial that soldier-worn connectors can resist moisture, impact, and even electromagnetic interference. 2M Connectors, such as our 2M Warrior-Lok designed for the U.S. Army’s Nett Warrior program, are optimized for the field and are ruggedized to withstand severely harsh environments, without compromising performance.

Military and Commercial Aircraft

Whether it's fighter jets, commercial jets, military helicopters, or other systems, components are getting smaller throughout military and commercial aerospace platforms. To reduce size and weight and to increase speeds, aerodynamics, flight capabilities, and weapons systems, critical components such as sensors, communication systems, avionics, and propulsion systems are being downsized without compromising functionality.

Amphenol 2M Connectors are built to ensure that intricate avionics systems receive accurate data, provide steadfast connections for in-flight communication systems, and guarantee that weapons systems receive the right signals at the right time. Given the high altitudes, rapid maneuvers, and extreme temperature variations these aircraft experience, having connectors that can withstand such conditions while facilitating vital connections is paramount.


Missile Systems

Missile systems require precise targeting and high-speed capabilities and demand components that can endure extreme conditions while maintaining impeccable performance. 2M Connectors are designed to facilitate seamless communication between sub-miniaturized subsystems within missiles, ensuring swift data transfer, power distribution, and control functions.

Given the G-forces, thermal fluctuations, and rapid accelerations typical of missile launches and flights, connectors play a pivotal role in ensuring that guidance, propulsion, and detonation systems function flawlessly. The 2M series guarantees that missile systems have the connectivity they require, contributing to their accuracy, reliability, and overall effectiveness.

EVTOL Aircraft

Electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft are poised to reshape urban transportation. The need for smaller, lightweight components has become paramount in these systems, enabling eVTOLs to navigate densely populated environments with agility and efficiency.

Given the constraints of size and weight in eVTOL designs, 2M Connectors provide an ideal solution, offering robust connections that can withstand the rigors of vertical takeoffs, landings, and in-flight dynamics. Their resilience in challenging environments, combined with their lightweight and compact nature, makes them indispensable for eVTOL systems, ensuring safety, efficiency, and optimal performance.


Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)




Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, or UAVs, play a central role in aerial reconnaissance, surveillance, and other military and civilian applications. Central to their operation is the need for lightweight, compact, and high-performance components. 2M Connectors are optimized for UAV design and functionality and ensure seamless data and power transmission, which is critical for real-time operations and remote controls in UAV systems. Given the diverse environments UAVs operate in, from arid deserts to humid jungles, the ruggedness of 2M Connectors ensures that UAVs remain operational.

Ground Vehicles

Military ground vehicles are also trending toward smaller profiles and lighter weights in everything from sensors to communication systems, weapon systems, and more. However, technological advancements in vehicle systems mean connections must be stronger and faster than ever.

Amphenol 2M micro-miniature connectors are the optimal interconnect solution for ground vehicle systems that require exceptional performance in a lower-profile package and are designed to endure the vibrations, dust, and rugged terrains these vehicles frequently encounter. Whether it's integrating advanced sensor systems for real-time threat detection, ensuring communication devices remain operational, or integrating navigation systems that demand uninterrupted power and data flow, 2M Connectors are the indispensable choice for ground vehicle systems.
