Linking proven performance to over 100 years of experience in the defense sector
When it comes to Military and Defense applications, compromising on quality, standards and performance is never an option. Prysmian Group cables have continually proven their value by providing vital support to many of the world’s major military organizations.
Precisely engineered for demanding environments
Our expertise in defense cable construction derives from our experience and ability to apply specific and unique technologies in research, development, and manufacturing.
Prysmian’s 10,000-square-foot test facility is designed to simulate the rigors of land, air, or sea and complies with international safety and quality standards. The laboratory is a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) whose results can be used for cable approval and certification. Our manufacturing facilities are also ISO 9001 approved.
Rigorous testing translates into precise and consistent manufacturing. Prysmian’s compounding processes are fully automated with our custom mixing and processing equipment. This allows formulas for insulation and jacketing materials to be accurately followed for consistent performance.
