Connectors is focused on applying emerging technology to optimize soldier connectivity”.
Fischer Connectors’ latest soldier connectivity solutions include a next-generation wearable tactical hub, and
the Fischer UltiMate™ and Fischer MiniMax™ connectors designed to meet the Army’s Nett Warrior
The next-generation hub is the heart of the individual soldier’s wearable connectivity solution, integrating the
power and data flows from multiple digital devices – sights, radios, displays and batteries – in a lightweight
ergonomic component. To connect all the soldier’s wearable electronics, Fischer Connectors enhances its
widely-used UltiMate and MiniMax connector designs to meet the technical requirements of integrated
dismounted leader situational awareness (SA) systems such as the U.S. Army’s Nett Warrior.
