SHELBURNE, VT – January 21, 2020 - Harbour Industries LLC (Harbour), a Marmon | Berkshire Hathaway company announced today it is an approved manufacturer for a number of low-loss coax and high-speed data cables used on Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lighting II 5th generation fighter aircraft.
Robert Canny, President said, “We look forward to supporting the 2020 F-35 Sustainment Contract just released by the Pentagon and Lockheed Martin. Harbour has a long reputation of providing timely products to our business partners to support their ramp to full production.” Declared "combat ready" by the commander of the US Air Combat Command, this next generation aircraft provides capabilities needed on the modern battlefield. The F-35 provides air superiority, interdiction, suppression of enemy air defenses and close air support with unprecedented situational awareness of the battle space that will be more extensive than any single-seat platform in existence.
Breaking the Weight Barrier
Air passengers are demanding more and more from in-flight entertainment systems. Travelers expect video streaming, wireless access, on-demand TV, and operating multiple screens -- just like they do on the ground. Airlines have to deliver or lose market share. But rising fuel costs require lighter weight communication cable. A dual challenge.
Harbour Industries is the leading supplier of QPL approved MIL-DTL-17 cables. All 50 Ohm constructions are swept for VSWR to ensure product quality. To meet demanding customer requirements, Harbour manufactures special versions of MIL-DTL-17 cables. Harbour's MIL-DTL-17 cables are used in wireless and cellular communication systems and antenna systems around the world.
Harbour also manufactures special RF Microwave cables used for numerous military and commercial aerospace applications, radio communication systems, internal RF transmission lines, and antenna distribution systems. These special series of cables include LL Low Loss coax with high velocity PTFE dielectrics and composite shields for high frequency and high power applications. Flat strip braids are also used in Harbour's SB Coax series, and spiral shields are used in Harbour's SS Coax series.

Electrical Wiring Interconnect Systems (EWIS)
Applications for Harbour's Cable in Military Ground Vehicles
As the premier manufacturer of wire and cable for the military market, Harbour provides diverse product offerings that meet or exceed many design requirements such as high speed data transmission, low insertion loss, or high shielding effectiveness. Harbour's cables have been chosen for use in all types of military ground vehicle subsystems for:
APRIL 2015 Setting a new standard for attenuation stability, Harbour’s SS coaxial cables are flexible alternatives to semi-rigid coax, and the unique shielding configuration offers a cost effective, low attenuation option. The use of strip/round braid composite shields results in low transfer impedance levels. The 50 Ohm constructions exhibit the same attenuation characteristics as the M17/130-RG402 and M17/133-RG405 cables. All SS cables have VSWR characteristics that meet or exceed similar size flexible constructions. SS402 and SS405 have been configured with diameters over the outer braids of .141” and 086” respectively, so standard SMA connectors may be used.
