  • 7 months after its take-off, Perseverance has completed its journey and landed on Mars last Thursday, February 18th. Axon’ Cable, specialist in custom-designed interconnect, equips the SuperCam camera of the rover sent by NASA, partly developed by French companies.

  • It is official, the European Space Agency has just qualified two new ranges of micro-D connectors designed by Axon'. It is worth noting that out of the last 11 connector standards published on the ESA website, nine concern products developed by Axon'! This is a perfect illustration of the company's expertise both in connectors and in the space field.

  • This is the second time that Axon' Cable SIA, the Latvian subsidiary of the Axon' group, is considered as a Key and Gold supplier for Airbus Poland. This highlights the high level of   reliability provided by the company in terms of delivery time and quality.

  • Following hard on the heels of a brand new factory inaugurated in Bangalore, India in 2019, Axon’ Cable SAS, the headquarters of the Axon’ Group in Montmirail, France, has just overseen the erection, in record time despite the Covid-19 pandemic, of a 4000 m² new facility.  This site, named Axoplus, illustrates the group's desire to accelerate its efforts in terms of innovation.

  • The European Space Agency has just added high speed MicroMach® SpaceWire links into the European Preferred Parts List making Axon’ the only company to be EPPL2 listed for this range of products.  Compact and robust, this impedance-matched, high speed connector is capable of data rates well in excess of typical SpaceWire performance, even up to 3 Gb/s.

  • Only Axon’ Cable currently provides a range of RF cable assemblies up to 45 GHz which has been QPL qualified by ESA according to the ESCC3408/003 specification.  Up to twice as light as non-approved equivalent products, these cable assemblies achieve excellent electrical characteristics.  In short, this is an ideal solution for antennae designed for telecommunication satellites operating in the Q band (45 GHz).

  • Axon’s newest High Data Rate connector – the MicroMach® – developed under an ESA Technology Development Element (TDE) and born from the twin legacies of the company’s Micro-D connectors and AxoMach® High Data Rate family has been selected for its first ESA mission – SMILE!

  • Ultra-fast connection and modularity all in a tiny parcel!  This is what the new range of Versatys® connectors developed by Axon’ Cable offers.  Derived from Micro-D technology, these miniature connectors can be mated and locked in place without any tooling and all in a single click.  The time saving is obvious!  Compared with power D-Sub, Versatys® connectors deliver substantial space and weight savings while achieving the same and even better overall performance.
