Trackwise, the AS9100D accredited innovative UK designer and manufacturer of specialist interconnect solutions using printed circuit technology, will demonstrate the massive advantages that its patented Improved Harness Technology™ (IHT) can bring to defence applications at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition which takes place 14-17 September at London’s ExCeL.

IHT from Trackwise uniquely enables multilayer Flex Printed Circuits (FPC) of unlimited length to be constructed. The resulting interconnect solutions replace multiple wires with a single FPC, saving weight and space, and increasing flexibility, reliability and repeatability while reducing assembly time.

Already the company is developing multiple IHT interconnect FPCs for numerous aircraft and other defence applications, designed and produced at the company’s UK facilities in Tewkesbury.

Philip Johnston, CEO of Trackwise comments: “Light weight and small size are often critical for aircraft applications, and our IHT flex printed circuit technology is enabling new designs that would have been impossible with traditional wire harnesses.”
