“This will be our 8th year as an exhibitor at DSEI and we look forward to each one, as the show gets bigger and better, giving us more sales opportunities. Not only that, but as a specialist niche supplier, we need to keep our ears to the ground and DSEI helps us to be made aware of the future needs of the military communications market. At the same time, of course, we get to introduce our new developments, designed to answer the constant demand for better, faster and more secure military communications.
In the UK, ODU is probably best known for our support of the Bowman programme, where we have supplied over 100,000 helmet connectors without a single reported in-service failure. This, together with work on several global Future Soldier programmes, lead to the successful introduction of our Advanced Military Connector [AMC] series of miniature push-pull connectors.
In battlefield deployment, the soldier deserves a connector system that is totally secure and utterly reliable – that is exactly what the company aims to offer. However, to serve the various soldier modernisation systems is only the start – ODU’s target for the future is to connect all interfaces around the soldier, such as weapons, communications systems and vehicle connections, so that both system engineers and soldiers can benefit from one connector family that meets all the requirements for every specific application.
We will be showcasing some of these new military connector developments at DSEI 2017 and you can preview them here:
ODU also offers a comprehensive assembly service – including connectors, cable, over-moulding, watertight-potting and metalwork – we can supply your sub-system from one totally reliable source – shipped to line. Consultation, requirement analysis, product design & development, prototype manufacture, pre-production batch delivery, technical documentation: we take care of everything necessary to produce a great system solution specifically for you.
However, the company’s skill-set, as an independent, specialist, connector manufacturer includes one further special ingredient – flexibility – the ability to sit down with the customer and design a way out of a problem, the ability to produce a connector that is truly fit-for-purpose and to deliver that on-time and within budget. So, if you’re faced with a connector or packaging conundrum, then why not drop by stand S6-434 in the German Pavillion and tell us about your problems – we may have an answer”.
