SHELBURNE, VT - March 24, 2017

Harbour Industries LLC, the premier manufacturer of high performance cable for the aerospace market, recently received approval from Lockheed to manufacture a number of low loss coax and high speed data cables for their new F-35A Lighting ll fifth generation fighter aircraft.

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.

A New Industry Standard for Attenuation Stability



As a premier manufacturer of high performance wire and cable, Harbour has developed a full line of high speed data cables for Aerospace applications such as In-Flight-Entertainment, Cabin Management Systems, Satellite Communications to name a few.

Harbour’s LL coaxial cables, with expanded PTFE dielectrics and strip braid composite configurations, offer attenuation from 20 to 35% below other mil spec cables of comparable size. When size and weight are considerations, Harbour’s LL cables should be considered. The unique braid configuration and the expanded PTFE dielectrics of the LL cable constructions contribute to lower attenuation levels at higher frequencies, while providing shielding effectiveness levels that exceed those of flexible MIL-DTL-17 cables. Flat strips of silver plated copper are braided over the dielectric core with an intermediate metalized polyester or polyimide layer, and an outer round wire braid.

Harbour Industries LLC is committed to manufacturing wire and cable products to the highest quality standards in the military, aerospace and defense industries.  In support of that commitment to quality Harbour recently completed the 2015 annual audit of their Quality Management System.  

Comparing an "RG" Coax to a MIL-DTL-17 Coax is like comparing an Apple to an Orange.

Shelburne, VT — Back in 1965, the founders of Harbour Industries had a vision: to manufacture high temperature and high performance cable for the military, commercial and industrial markets. Over time, they added products for the rapidly growing aerospace arena. Fast-forward fifty years, and Harbour celebrates its golden anniversary by highlighting continuous innovation and breakthroughs in cable technology.
