Military Humvee


A UK manufacturer and provider of Mil-Spec cable assemblies to the defence, security, communication and commercial markets.


ICS Ltd manufacture high quality, robust, rugged, durable and reliable cable assemblies made for military applications. We understand the highly demanding environments in which our products are used- they have to remain reliable.  For instance, an interconnecting cable used on a military radio will at minimum have to withstand a high amount of mating cycles, use a locating keyway, feature push-pull  coupling, be IP68 rated for water and dust resistance and be flexible with a good strain bend relief.  Additionally, When fitted on a vehicle, is it suitable for a high vibration and shock environment?


We supply products to a global leading provider in secure voice, data and satellite communications for hostile environments. We have worked with many military radio communication companies and have had direct contracts with the Ministry of Defence.  Previously, we also helped facilitate the design and manufacture of a battery power back lead and connector for use in the military.


Mil-Spec connector cable assemblies are not just limited to military use. They are supplied for aerospace, industrial, automotive and commercial applications. For instance, we supply MS connector cable assemblies to mate with our own in-house manufactured magnetic pick-ups that uses the MS10 series connection system. These are used in diesel generators, gas engines, flow meters, cranes, pumps and generator sets. We also use MIL-DTL-38999 circular connectors for use in the renewable energy sector-used in wind turbine optimization equipment.


We use and source Mil-Spec connectors from the leading brands in this field;


  • Amphenol, Lemo, Souriau, ITT Cannon, TE Connectivity Raychem, TE Connectivity DEUTSCH, Polamco


We can assemble a range of Mil-Spec connector series, Some examples- but not limited to:


  • MIL-DTL-38999 (miniature circular)

  • MIL-DTL-26482 (miniature circular)

  • MIL-DTL-83723 (miniature circular)

  • MIL-DTL-5015 (heavy duty circular)

  • MIL-DTL-83513 (Micro D Type)

  • MIL-C-24308 ( D-Sub Types)

  • High quality & Precision- We use precision equipment by Schleuniger, Wiremec, Komax and GLW to automate the cutting and preparation of wires and cable. (Please see our Tools and equipment page). This enables a consistent high quality stripping process that can be called up from a list of stored programs time and time again.

  • High quality consistent crimping processes- using the DMC military standard, APP frame crimp tools and pneumatic WDT press .

  • Documented & traceable crimp control data- including application set-up parameters, batch recording of crimp height and width measurements and pull-test target and results.

  • Cable and wire ident marking- Mil-Spec cable assembly with cable idents, for example,  connector end identifier, product part number, Nato Stock Number and batch coding. This can be achieved through our thermal transfer printing system onto heatshrink sleeving (please see our Cable Marking & Ident labelling page)

  • We offer a complete Mil-Spec cable assembly service, low, medium and high volume.

  • 100% electronically batch tested- a range of test equipment available from cable scanners-High Voltage mega tester-DVM’s and LCR bridges.

  • Full documented traceability.
