The space frontier is becoming increasingly important worldwide, as missions intensify. The ESA specifications are being developed to catalog and record minimum requirements and specifications, for fiber optics in space. Diamond is intricately involved in the development of ESA qualifications.
Currently, Diamond’s AVIM and Mini-AVIM are the connectors of choice, for space flight optical interconnect solutions. Diamond AVIM and Mini-AVIM’s connector provides an inherent ability to perform under varying stress factors (temperature, shock, vibration, tensile strength, external pressure, corrosive surrounds, etc.). Whether the application relates to Lasers, sensors, interstellar communications or space vehicles, requiring large core multimode or polarization maintaining fibers, Diamond is the clear choice.
