AFL Sidewinder Rapid Cable Deployment System

Saturday, 01 September, 2018 | Supplied by: AFL Telecommunications Pty Ltd


AFL’s Sidewinder Rapid Cable Deployment System allows for fast deployment and retrieval of tactical fibre-optic cables used in field deployment applications. The reel is made using lightweight, high-impact polymer that is non-corrosive and able to withstand extreme temperatures.

Additionally, the reel features built-in connector storage in the centre hub as well as a folding handle for fast Sidewinding action. The design of the reel allows them to be stacked and locked together for transport or for field deployment. The specially engineered foam insert within the hub allows safe storage of the connectors when not in use.

The reel is available in four sizes, to store cables up to 1000 m in length (when using 5.5 mm cable). They can also be supplied with cable stands, connector cleaning kits and military approved transit cases.

It can be used in tactical military ground systems; mining and tunnelling equipment; gas and oil fields; broadcast systems; road and rail communications; and industrial signalling.

Main features include availability in four sizes to suit varying cable lengths and dimensions; made from lightweight, high-impact materials for easy cable deployment and retrieval; reels can be easily stacked and locked together; available in Black, Desert Tan and Olive Drab to suit the terrain; optional folding stands to house the reel during use; and storage compartments within the centre hub house the connectors and a cleaning kit.
