Fiber in the Cockpit!

Fiberplex cockpit

FiberPlex – There’s a tactical reason why fighter pilots need good vision. He who sees first, strikes first. But anymore, that kind of vigilance takes more than good eyesight. Today’s next-generation avionics include thermal and infrared imaging, better radar systems and enhanced surveillance systems that require the transference of huge amounts of data in real-time. […]

FiberPlex WEN-6 Waveguide Extension Nut

Fiberplex WEN-6, WGF-6

FiberPlex WGF series of waveguide filters provide a way of bringing pre-terminated fiber optic cables into a shielded enclosure while maintaining the enclosure’s radio frequency isolation integrity. The diameter and length of the bore are precisely calculated to provide a measured attenuation at a specific cutoff frequency. This works extremely well, but occasionally the wall […]

Fiberplex water treatment plant

FiberPlex SCADA hacking is on the rise. We just learned of another attack on a water treatment plant in which hacktivists were able to change chemical levels through the SCADA system. Attacks targeting SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems rose 100 percent in 2014 compared to the previous year. These data control systems are […]

Maximizing Infrastructure – Is There Gold In Your Walls?

Fiberplex gold img

FiberPlex Technologies, Kyle Rosenbloom  In retrospect it’s wonderful that so many buildings had the foresight to install fiber optics in their walls. The copper lines originally used are now past their breaking point, having exceeded their limitations. Copper has become woefully inefficient when faced with the current need for lightning-fast data transmission and cyber security. […]
