Over 50 years of developing Space Systems
Glenair’s history of interconnect innovation for manned space applications began with our design and fabrication role in the realization of the golden umbilical life-support cable used by Commander Ed White in the first American Gemini Program space walk in 1965.
This was a complex cable assembly with an exacting set of performance requirements. Even though this application is now over 50 years old, it still reflects Glenair’s unique skill set as both a manufacturer of high-performance connectors and wire protection products as well as a provider of turnkey assemblies incorporating Glenair signature interconnect technology.
