MilSource: Techaya Ethernet Switch on Board Selected for Commercial Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Program

LOS ANGELES - DECEMBER 19, 2017 - MilSource, the exclusive US distributor of Techaya ruggedized switching and routing solutions, today announced that the Techaya MILTECH 309 Ethernet Switch on Board was selected by a leading underwater, remotely-operated vehicle (ROV) manufacturer to provide Ethernet switching between on-board imaging sonar, positioning software and hardware, and other sensors.

The MILTECH 309 is the smallest rugged unmanaged switch on the market today. Its size, weight, power, low thermal profile, and ultra-high reliability make it a perfect Ethernet switching solution for compact underwater and aerial vehicles. Its conformal coating seals out environmental elements while stabilizing components for the highest reliability under less than ideal conditions.

“The MILTECH 309 is one of Techaya’s most unique and popular products on the market today. It is smaller than a credit card and weighs less than 3 ounces. It provides Ethernet switching with almost no impact on payload,” said Ronen Isaac, general manager for MilSource. “We’ve had many companies turn to this rugged switch after trying to tear apart commercial grade switches to just use the boards. These solutions just don’t stand up the environment rigors that unmanned solutions present.”
