The product provides network data access, peripheral connectivity and smart battery power management for soldiers – from standard light infantry to Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs) – and enables them to make the most of C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) electronics, while optimizing power monitoring and distribution performance.

STAR-PAN power/data hubs and cables are designed for optimal size, weight, power, and ruggedized mil-spec performance with battle-tested environmental and EMC sealing and shielding. They provide the soldier with: Ethernet; USB and RS232 compatible peripheral support; software-defined radio support for all Mil-Std. and NATO platforms; charging, scavenging and battery power control; Android compatible power management and monitoring as well as across-the-board interoperability with US and NATO standards.

The power/data hubs are ideal for use in Digitally Aided Close Air Support (DACAS) missions, including precision targeting, tactical radio communications, real-time video downlink, night vision technologies, GPS/navigation, blue force tracking, personal computing and smart phone integration.
