Mil-Spec Wire & Cable

MIL-Spec wire is the abbreviation for military specification wire. This is the standard used to manufacture specialized wires and cables for the U.S. Department of Defense. In other words, a MIL-Spec cable is assembled in conformity with the United States Military specifications. MIL-Spec wire and cable are applicable for critical military computerized operations and may be used in high-frequency computerized applications where hot temperatures will be the norm. Mil-spec cable is specially produced for the most severe environments. Due to its construction for excess conditions, MIL-Spec wire can be used for an array of purposes, which include: safeguarding and protective housing, airframe cable, point-to-point wiring, antennas, bus-bar, ground wire, and bonding moving parts. MIL-Spec cable performs well in applications requiring absolute-reliability in physical and demanding environments. Depending on the military specification, separate MIL-Spec wires will have different applications for which they function excellently.
