shipboardkSARIA excels at providing their customers with customized cable configurations.  kSARIA works with their customers to help design and configure shipboard cables to meet their specific needs. A partial list of the variety of cables includes using the M28876 family of connectors, multi-channels, single mode, multi-mode, multiple links, breakout cables, Mil-Spec surface and submarine applications, and generally any fiber optic backbone assembly. Please contact kSARIA for any of your customized cable configuration needs.

Measurement Quality Jumpers (MQJ)

Measurement Quality Jumpers (MQJs) are high quality reference cables designed to provide accurate and consistent test results while testing fiber optic cable assemblies. The U.S. Navy requires that MQJ’s are used to test all shipboard fiber installations as specified in MIL-STD-2042.  The Navy has specified numerous different MQJ configurations in NAVSEA drawing 6877804 for various application tests.  kSARIA offers the following NAVSEA approved MQJ part numbers:
