Marine Connector and Cable Solutions
Many countries are prioritising control of their territorial waters and increasing naval capacity to help meet that challenge. Older vessels are subject to life extension programmes and future capacity is being designed with ever more complex capabilities. Increased dependency on these platforms creates greater emphasis on their operational availability, as well as ensuring consistent long-term performance.
For 30 years, SMI has been the technology leader in the design and production of connector and cable solutions in naval defence, both above and below the water line. We are the preferred supplier for through-hull penetrators and connectors to the UK’s Royal Navy nuclear submarine and surface fleets. ISO 9001:2008 approved, SMI is the only company to have 27 years of continuous Capability Approval certification from the UK’s Ministry of Defence.
