STAR-PAN™ soldier data hub and power distribution system

Result:

Optimal size and weight reduction.

Ruggedized soldier-worn electronics have revolutionized mission effectiveness. But the ongoing evolution of Digitally Aided Close Air Support (DACAS) missions, including precision targeting, tactical radio communications, real-time video downlink, night vision technologies, GPS/navigation, blue force tracking, personal computing and smart phones have added significant mission weight to the dismounted soldier ensemble. Battery power management for this broad range of electronic gear is a significant challenge in terms of mission time, weight and supply logistics. The Glenair STAR-PAN™ data hub and power distribution system enables soldiers—particularly in Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) roles—to make the most of C4ISR devices, improving situational awareness, surveillance, intelligence and reconnaissance while optimizing power monitoring, conditioning, and distribution performance. Importantly, all STAR-PAN™ technologies, from the high-density Glenair Mighty Mouse quick disconnect connectors and cables to the low-profile hub enclosure itself are designed for optimal size, weight, and ruggedized mil-spec performance with battle-tested environmental and EMC sealing and shielding.
