NASA's requirements are understandably high. NASA wanted to reduce the size and weight of the components without sacrificing system reliability. Furthermore, they wanted the economy a commercially developed product could offer future missions manned and unmanned. Johanson responded to their requirements and developed a line of High Reliability FC connectors for the mission. "With extensive experience in connectors, material selection and machining, our team was able to quickly design a new smaller, lightweight connector ideal for the application," said JMC Director of Engineering, John Loughlin. "I also think NASA was pleasantly surprised when prototypes were delivered within a few weeks of the initial visit."
"As a US company, we are proud to be a contributor to the NASA effort and the fiber optic community in general," remarked JMC President, Nancy Johanson. Even though the connectors were developed for NASA, other commercial, aerospace and military system designers seeking low cost, high reliability component solutions are already specifying Johanson connectors for their exceptional performance.
