The customer was concerned about a lack of performance on an interconnect for the Tactical Tomahawk program. The potential solutions attempted were unacceptable because of lack of performance of the interconnect.
Flexible Circuits Inc was given an opportunity to participate in concurrent engineering. The resultant 30 layer type 4 at 1 up on an 18×24 was very flexible, it was robust and it was delivered on time. Opportunity presented itself a second time. Assembly and box build was within the skill matrix at FCI. Assembly of the flex, insertion of flex into the box and HASS test completed the subassembly.
