Designed to address the harsh environment market need for a retrofit solution designed to significantly reduce size and weight requirements in space applications, the OPTO-FIRE™ “optic core” offers a replacement for traditional copper cabling while delivering improved data transfer performance.
Designed and manufactured in the U.K., the APITech OPTO-FIRE™ micro-optical transceiver can be incorporated to improve critical data communication systems in space applications where data transfer reliability is critical.
Optical Fibre is up to 90% lighter and 70% lower in volume than traditional copper cabling. It can also carry up to 10 times the data over much longer distances without the signal reduction associated with copper. Optical Fibre is also non-conductive and insensitive to electromagnetic effects, making it perfect for use in next generation satellite technology.
