Harsh environment fiber optic cable assemblies have been used for decades in military ground systems. There are significant security benefits because they emit no EMI signature and are immune to RF interference. They are also ideal for tactical deployment because they are lighter in weight, smaller in diameter and higher in bandwidth.

Amphenol Fiber Systems International (AFSI) is one of the leading providers of rugged fiber optic interconnect and optical system technologies for the military. AFSI's connectors and cable assemblies, designed to withstand the harshest modern battlefield conditions, have been a standard in the military for more than a decade.

AFSI's development and patent of the TFOCA-II® connector puts it on the leading edge of technology, providing a more reliable tactical connector than previously available.
