The US Navy has developed an exceptionally robust yet easy-to-use cable shield ground adapter that dramatically decreases installation and total life cycle costs

The Navy has developed, tested, and patented a cable shield ground adapter (CSGA) that is easy to use, highly robust, and inexpensive. The Navy CSGA is designed to accommodate a broad range of cable and conduit sizes with a minimal number of adapters. For example, any size cable from 1/8” to 1” can be grounded and secured in a K-sized tube using the Navy’s device. An internal seal acts as the primary protection against environmental conditions, providing superior sealing and relegating fickle heat shrink boots to a secondary protective status.

The Navy’s CSGA meets stringent military standards (MIL-STD-1310H) but is still expected to cost approximately 1/10th that of current products. The design can also enable the repair and retrofitting of previous installations without expensive repair kits and the time-consuming process of pulling cables. The Navy’s solution weighs about 50% less than other products and offers outstanding pull-out resistance.
