TE Connectivity Launches Lightweight, Ruggedized O.C.H. Micro Circular Connectors for Nett Warrior Program at AUSA 2017

Members of the media are invited to visit TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, at the 2017 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition to witness the launch of its line of O.C.H. micro circular connectors authorized for use in the U.S. Army’s Nett Warrior Soldier vests and peripheral devices. In addition, attending members of the media will have the opportunity to explore TE’s wide range of other military and defense solutions.

The Nett Warrior program was developed to meet the need for instant situational awareness and communications capabilities that the modern battlefield demands. TE’s O.C.H. micro circular connectors enable Nett Warrior systems to provide dismounted Soldiers with this connectivity without increasing weight or sacrificing performance.

TE is a leader in harsh environment solutions, and these ruggedized connectors have passed rigorous U.S. Army performance standards, including the mechanical and performance requirements of MIL-STD-810G.

Representatives from TE will be available at booth #7843 throughout the show to answer questions and participate in interviews related to O.C.H. micro circular connectors and other interconnectivity solutions, such as:

  • Harnessing
  • Application Tooling
  • Lightweight DC Contactors
  • Rugged Fiber Optics
  • Contactless Connectivity

TE’s booth will also feature other military and defense solutions for harsh environments, power management, sensors and value-added assemblies/harnesses.
