Delivering Long Term Reliability in Hostile Marine Environments
SMI supports a range of industries that operate in the marine environment. For 30 years SMI has been the technology leader in the design and production of cable systems in naval defence, both above and below the water line. This technology is now supporting the development of autonomy in defence.
The Telemetrix™ portfolio of products is a broad range of products designed and deployed on submarines across the world over three decades. The long term reliability and optimised performance offered by Telemetrix™ cables, penetrators, harnesses and connections are essential to boat propulsion and navigation, combat systems and operational capability. TelemetriX™ was developed for future naval capabilities but is being retrofitted to platforms to enable early deployment of pioneering tactical technologies, ensure reliability and deliver life extension.
SMI’s sales partner in Canada, Simex Defence, provide regional commercial and technical support and additionally, we offer support from Europe in both English and French languages.
