ITT Cannon’s Nemesis II CBA 20M+ is one of a group of miniature circular interconnects for soldier-worn applications. It is designed and tested for water submersion to 20-plus meters (65.6 feet). The small and lightweight interconnect part is intended to perform in extreme conditions and harsh environments, making it usable for battlefield communication devices and applications such as manpack and handheld radios, among others.

The Nemesis II CBA 20M+ enables power, signal, and data in an integrated design package, enabling the warfighter to reduce physical load, maintain communication, and receive mission-critical information when they need it most. Key features include the company’s Cannon Breakaway functionality, which enables the user to quickly disconnect and reconnect if their cables and equipment become snagged. It also features a spring-loaded pogo contact that enables high mating cycles (quick connection/disconnection) that leads to durable and reliable operation in the field. Additional features include a highly engineered blind mating design and possible termination to wire, PCB, and flex circuits.
