“The new revolution is driven by a confluence of three digital technologies: ubiquitous full-spectrum sensing,5G networks, and artificial intelligence” – Fischer Connectors in ‘The Connectivity Challenge’ 

“Army Transformation is facing a revolution in military affairs, and Fischer Connectors is transforming products and services to address the Army’s needs,” said Jonathan Brossard, CEO of the Switzerland-based Fischer Connectors Group at the  Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting & Exposition in Washington, D.C. “Soldier  connectivity is the key enabler for improving command and control. Along with our Army partners, Fischer  Connectors is focused on applying emerging technology to optimize soldier connectivity”.

Fischer Connectors’ latest soldier connectivity solutions include a next-generation wearable tactical hub, and 
the Fischer UltiMate™ and Fischer MiniMax™ connectors designed to meet the Army’s Nett Warrior  standards.

The next-generation hub is the heart of the individual soldier’s wearable connectivity solution, integrating the 
power and data flows from multiple digital devices – sights, radios, displays and batteries – in a lightweight  ergonomic component. To connect all the soldier’s wearable electronics, Fischer Connectors enhances its  widely-used UltiMate and MiniMax connector designs to meet the technical requirements of integrated  dismounted leader situational awareness (SA) systems such as the US Army’s Nett Warrior.

“Land forces face a new revolution in military affairs based on three digital technologies: ubiquitous sensors, 
5G networks and artificial intelligence,” said Jack Midgley, Fischer Connectors Group’s Global Defense  Market Leader. “Fischer Connectors has developed new connectivity solutions to help land force  commanders tackle this revolution. High-speed, high volume data transmission, improved power  management and wearability are essential for commanders to exploit new sensors, networks and AI  applications. Fischer Connectors has met these challenges with Swiss-engineered solutions meeting tough  Army standards.

Fischer Connectors showcases new soldier connectivity solutions at Booth #8249 (Halls DE) at AUSA, with  hands-on product demonstrations.

Fischer Connectors’ experts in soldier modernization connectivity have described the new revolution in  military affairs in the Trend Paper entitled ‘The Connectivity  Challenge – A New Revolution in Military Affairs’, published at AUSA as a world premiere.
