Custom Connectors (continued)

DCX-CHOL designed underwater hermetic connector for a top secret “black” US Navy program. This connector is made out of an exotic metal called Nitronics 50 (high grade stainless steel type material) which is good up to l0,000 PSI. The contacts are individually sealed.

DCX-CHOL co-designed and fabricates a flight critical molded connector designed to apply power to the missile while the missile is in the launcher. The connector is designed to survive both restrained and flight environments where the connector can be exposed direct to the booster flame/plume for up to 30 seconds. The performance and thermal protection is accomplished through the use of a series of thermal ablative materials. Our connector has been tested with a missile shot and survived all environmental and heat requirements.
