CIWS COMPOSITE CONNECTOR

CIWS Composite Connector

Problem: Metallic topside connectors are inherently susceptible to corrosion.  A recent Navy SBIR resulted in a composite connector that could eliminate many of the current issues with systems such as Phalanx.

Solution: MTTC and NSWC/PHDL/ have teamed to obtain two Phalanx wiring harnesses equipped with the new composite connectors. The Navy will test the concept at  the land-based test site and on fleet units.

Benefits

Estimated Navy Cost Avoidance:

Minimum annual:      $100 K

Minimum 15 Year:   $1,500 K

 

Fleet Impact: Connectors are necessary in order to remove/install equipment for test and maintenance. Non-corroding connectors will greatly eliminate damage to existing connectors and the need to replace them.

Status: Complete

 

The Navy has received the MTTC-provided wiring harnesses with Composite connectors from Litecom, Inc. Navy Testing at the Phalanx Depot in Louisville will commence soon.

 

Applications Include:

All topside systems using connectors

All systems using connectors

All ship types and classes
