2019 will see the introduction of more complex vest systems, which will carry more varied equipment, coming from numerous suppliers. Though this will be welcomed by the troops themselves, this has brought with it numerous problems for the prime contractors in that connection on the vest systems is critical, not just in terms of correct working of the system itself, but ease of connection and disconnection of the varied products. With many companies providing products in this field to many different militaries it is important to view the many options which are available.

TT Electronics, AB Connectors designs and manufactures leading edge connectivity solutions for today’s soldier-borne systems which include personal and tactical radios, tablet PDAs, active hearing protection, push-to-talk headsets, personal area networks and much more, with features such as magnetic connectors that help reduce weight as well as the cognitive burden of using such equipment.

TT Electronics have released three new products for the dismounted soldier market: Miniature MIL-DTL-38999 MABAC series, miniature push pull connector Mil-PP and a new ground breaking magnetic connector, mag-Net.
