unassailable ‘fit & forget’ pressure moulded cable systems for hostile environments

Fibregence & Slipstream

The Fibregence product set is frequently integral to Scientific Management International’s globally adopted TelemetriX infrastructure which offers rapid, secure, and dependable interoperability between critical naval systems in submarine and surface fleets. Complex system telemetry is delivered over optical fibre and hybrid interconnect solutions. Passive optical devices can also be package with the robust and assured pressure moulding technology proven over a quarter of a century at sea.

Thermoplastic moulding technology that has delivered more than 10,000 cable system installations with zero leaks in the most challenging marine applications is now delivering future ready connectivity solutions for naval platforms.

Optical fibre communications increase the data rate capability of systems and through SMI maximisation of bandwidth through the use couplers and wavelength division multiplexers, are all designed to withstand the vigours of the hostile marine environment over prolonged service life.

The durability required for subsea deployment and need to respect the bend radii of optical fibres, has typically resulted in large connections which are ill suited to limited spatial requirements. 

  • Low loss-low profile 90 degree termination
  • Optical connection without compromise
  • Choice of connector type available
  • Multimode & Singlemode fibre optics
  • Hybrid options of fibre & power available

Fibregence interconect and pressure hull penetrators can also be supplied with PlastEthUrm dual jacket mouldings for product life expectancy exceeding 25 years.

Scientific Management International have brought their moulding and fibre expertise together in SlipstreaM which offers a 90° thermoplastic sealed cable routing for a range of connectors. Optical performance is preserved and installations can be designed efficiently.
