Sunkye Connector Solution for Unmanned Solutions-UAV/UUVs/USV/UGV

With the development of the Unmanned technology, more and more UAV/UUVs/USV/UGV s are used in modern military operations, and some even predict that UAV/UUVs/USV/UGV will likely become the dominant force in air operations in the 21st century.

UAV/UUVs/USV/UGVs have the characteristics of compact structure, strong concealment, flexible maneuverability, low cost, and easy to use. They are mainly used in battlefield reconnaissance, electronic jamming, carrying cluster bombs, guided missiles, and other weapons to perform offensive missions, and used as air communication relay platform, nuclear test sampler, nuclear explosion and nuclear radiation reconnaissance aircraft, etc. The size of UAV ranges from a large wingspan of 40 meters to palm drones as small as 16 cm and weighs only 18 grams. More and more types of drones have been developed and put into application. There are higher autonomous mobility and size requirements about UAV, no doubt that connectors play an increasingly important role in the design process. The application fields of Sunkye UAV connectors include:
  • UAV Power & Control Systems
  • UAV Guidance Systems
  • Inertial Navigation Systems (INS)
  • Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS)
  • Thermal or Visual Cameras
  • Airborne Radar Systems (solar, communication, surveillance, etc.)
  • Laser Scanners
  • UAV Ground Control Station (GSC)

Although there are now advanced reconnaissance and strike integrated drones, 80% of UAVs are still reconnaissance drones, which determines that a large part of military drones will develop in the future in a smaller size. The smaller size, lighter weight, and excellent adaptability to various extreme environments give Sunkye connectors performance that exceeds the requirements of military drones:
  • Size and Volume: Micro-D and Nano-D connectors can meet light and miniaturize demand
  • Weight: 0.3g~5g
  • Spacing of Contacts: 0.635 mm/1.27 mm/2.54 mm
  • Superior Electrical Transmission Performance: Twist Pin contact, which is top technology in the world
  • EMC: 360° EMC shielding
  • Vibration: 10HZ~2000HZ 196 m/s²
  • Shock: 980 m/s² 6ms
  • High Temperature: -55℃~+125℃
  • Waterproof Seal: IP67/IP68
  • Low Current: 1A~3A

Under the unmanned application solutions in Aviation/Ground Radar/Military Ground Vehicles and Communications/Navy Coast Guard/ Space/Satellites/Sub sea/Oil Gas and Commercial Industry, Sunkye microstrip connector R013 & R068 series products provide an integrated mounting for it. Benefit the ultra-small & narrow size and weight, high-frequency, 1.27 mm*1.1 mm space in 1 row and 2 rows design. With stable signal and electrical transform and with latch or W/O for choose.

Currently, there are more than 200 types of UAV in the world, and there will be more in the future. Sunkye can produce custom connectors to meet different types and functional design requirements of drones.
Drones are consumables to a certain extent, and in order to adapt to the rapidly changing application environment, the cost control of connectors and fast delivery time are very important. As a connector manufacturer company with 70 years of professional experience, Sunkye can meet these two requirements very well.

Sunkye Connection Technologies provides a wide product portfolio with a complete interconnect solutions offering. Sunkye connectors and cables assemblies are complementary with Sunkye backshells and conduits.
