Aurora Optics Fusion Splicer
Aurora Optics engaged DesignDesign to adapt their state-of-the-art fiber optic splicing technology for Military flight-line maintenance. Working in conjunction with Aurora, Lockheed Martin and NAVAIR, DD developed a compact, explosion proof enclosure system for single-handed use in cramped and hazardous environments. The unit is rugged enough to satisfy MIL-PRF-28800F requirements, including vibration, mechanical shock, thermal cycling, high humidity, salt spray, sand-and-dust, and shock/drop. Its electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) renders it both immune to ambient EMI and shielded against emissions, which might interfere with other nearby equipment.
