Connectors for Defense and Aerospace


Product Description

SCHOTT Electronic Packaging offers both standard connectors as well as  modified, custom made military grade connectors for defense and aerospace applications, such as MIL-C-5015, MIL-C38999, or MIL-C-26482 commercial equivalents.

Our hermetically-sealed harsh environment connectors are made to meet very high requirements in terms of ruggedness and reliability, such as resistance to high pressure and temperature cycling.

Standard connectors refer to circular and rectangular connectors manufactured according to popular military specifications. Modified connectors are connectors that are customized to suit a specific application:
  • Special flanges
  • Custom contact configuration
  • Single glass beads for high pressure applications
  • Double ended feedthroughs


The advanced connectors that SCHOTT Electronic Packaging manufactures at its own state-of-the-art facility either meet or exceed the specifications and requirements that apply to the respective industry.

In addition, SCHOTT Electronic Packaging offers a number of important value-added services, such as increasing the flange size, changing pins, employment of exotic metals, wire harnesses and PC boards (both commercial and defense). For instance, when customers require our parts to be welded onto another component, we can offer a one-piece construction thereby helping our customers to reduce a weld operation and at the same time offer a much more robust part.


SCHOTT Electronic Packaging offers dependable military grade connectors for a variety of different defense and aerospace applications, including sensorspressure sensors, transducers, piezo electronics, vibration sensors and products for use in monitoring such as gas detection.

Our connectors comply with MIL-C-5015, MIL-DTL-28748, MIL-DTL-28840, MIL-DTL-26482, MIL-DTL-38999, MIL-DTL-83723, MIL-DTL-26500, SAE AS 81703, MIL-DTL-24308.
