Perseverance’s new Supercam has links between the electronic system and telescope designed by Axon’. This cable assembly, which transmits information to the rover, is terminated at each end by a specific pair of miniature Micro-D connectors. Additionally, Axon has also carried out the cabling of the microphone installed about the Perseverance’s SuperCam. All the cabling of the SuperCam and the microphone has been made in clean room under controlled atmosphere in the Axon’ site located in Montmirail in France. Designed in collaboration with NASA and IRAP Toulouse, with the help of CNRS and CNES, SuperCam is a concentrate of technologies that will remotely analyse Martian rocks.
As provider of cable and interconnect solutions with excellent durability in extreme environments, Axon has products suitable for different energy technologies and also participate in events such as the recent 14th International Symposium on Fusion Nuclear Technology ISFNT in Budapest, Hungary.
Welcome to meet us and talk about advanced interconnect solutions with special cables and connectors at Evertiq Expo Lund, which will take place at Medicon Village on Thursday September 26, 2019 between 09:00-16:00!
The emerging sector “New Space” requires not only reliable space certified components but also industrial solutions adapted to rapid production of satellites in volume. Aware of this requirement, Axon’ has developed new fast & easy to use interconnect products such as Micro-D with D-click fast latching system or Micro-D Versatys® with removable power contacts.
Axon’ is an acknowledged expert in the design and manufacture of custom designed cables and miniature connectors. Axon’ Cable has drawn on this experience in Micro-D and high data rate links to develop new range of optical cables, Micro-D connectors and cable assemblies. Vertically integrated, Axon’ manufacture optimized fiber optics cables adapted to Axon’ high performance optical Micro-D connectors.
Ranging from civil aircraft, airfighters, launchers to rovers, the list of applications for which the Axon’ Group can provide interconnect solutions is extensive. But all have a common goal: the need for miniature and reliable components. Paris Air Show represents an excellent opportunity for Axon’ to present its expertise in cables, connectors and miniature contacts. See you on stand E107, hall 2B.
900! This is the number of satellites that the American company OneWeb has planned to manufacture to provide Internet access for everyone, everywhere – even in the hard to reach area. The first 6 satellites of this mega-constellation have just been launched. Axon’ Cable has been selected to cable all 900 satellites by the Joint Venture in charge of the manufacturing of the spacecraft, Airbus-OneWeb Satellites that loves rising to the challenges.
About one year after the first pickaxe, the Indian subsidiary of Axon’ Cable, leader in cable and interconnect systems, has now moved to a brand new, purpose-built factory located in the Hitech Defense and Aerospace Park close to Bangalore airport.
