Custom UAV Cable Assembly & UAS Wire Harness Manufacturer

UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) are Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), which are air vehicles and associated equipment which do not carry a human operator. They are remotely piloted, or they fly autonomously. UAS are also commonly referred to as RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) or drones. UAS are utilized in the Defense, Aerospace and Robotics industries, and often operate in harsh environmental conditions.

Wiring harness and cable assemblies for UAVs require higher capabilities than what a standard ‘off-the-shelf’ cable assembly can deliver. Many UAVs contain a high amount of electronics and components, which have the potential to emit RF (radio frequency) and electromagnetic radiation. In addition, weight, size/space, longevity, flexibility, safety reliability, and durability are just a few of the critical factors that must be considered when designing these assemblies.

Data Cable – Your UAV Cable Assembly Manufacturer

A graphic sun steaks in a blue sky.

For decades we have been customizing cable assemblies, wire harnessing and more, for a wide and diverse range of industries, including UAS, UAV & RPAS.

We are proven interconnect experts, having solved some of the most complex interconnect challenges for a variety of applications and systems in all the industries we serve. From designing to manufacturing to testing and delivering finished UAV interconnect solutions, we consistently operate at the highest level of quality attainable:

  • We have the capabilities, credentials, and rigorous testing processes in place at our UL-certified Canadian cable assembly manufacturing facility in Canada.
  • We maintain Military workmanship standards. We have trained personnel and certification to follow the IPC/WHMA-A-620 class 3 standard.
  • 100% Quality first time and every time is our measure of success. We inspect every single component before it leaves our facility. Field failures are NOT acceptable.

Quality UAV Cable Assembly Manufacturing Demands Strong Capabilities

We take immense pride in offering a full range of UAV interconnect products & services to meet the many needs of our customers, especially UAS OEMs in various industries and sectors.

When manufacturing custom cable assemblies for UAVs, there are numerous considerations that must be factored into the design to ensure they are reliable, durable and function as intended for their unique purpose. These include:

  • Weight & size constraints.
  • Flexibility requirements.
  • Temperature & moisture exposure.
  • Vibration, shock & pressure.
  • Abrasion resistance.
  • Resistance to diesel, oils, gas, and other fluids or chemicals.
  • Depending on the OEM, Military Specs or EMI requirements may need to be adhered to.

We have developed the means to deliver on time exactly what customers need and to their precise specifications, including:

  • Having an in-house Engineering & Design Team.
  • Having a proven QMS (Quality Management System) specific to our industry and capabilities.
  • Being certified to the ISO9001:2015 standard (SAI Global).
  • Being certified to UL, CSA, CGD (ITAR).
  • Having trained personnel and certification for IPC/WHMA-A-620 class 3.
  • Following IPC/WHMA-A-620, class 2 unless otherwise specified.
  • Testing 100% for continuity and shorts per IPC/WHMA-A-620, Section 19.5.1 and 19.5.2, class 2, unless otherwise specified.
  • Maintaining RoHS, REACH, & Conflict Minerals compliance capability.

Our Value Added Services like Kanban, Stocking Agreements, Technical support, Reverse Engineering and Prototyping not only make outsourcing more efficient, but they also aid in speeding up lead times and ensuring high quality and performance.
