Ethernet is rapidly becoming a standard in marine applications. Using Ethernet to integrate in-ship communication systems is a breakthrough that enables information centralization and improves management tasks. Integrating Ethernet networks with the ship’s distributed communication system significantly enhances the control and management of in-ship communications, electrical, water cooling, air-conditioning, damage control, fuel, cargo loading, propulsion, auxiliary equipment, radar, sonar, radio guidance, emergency, warning, and weapons systems.

Techaya’s complete line of military-grade Ethernet switches, routers and media converters are especially hardened to improve ingress, impact, and shock/vibration protection so that they can endure the corrosive effects of salt water, and be able to withstand excessive amounts of vibration and shock typically found in marine applications.

Autonomous Air

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are being developed for military, law enforcement border patrol, agriculture and a host of commercial applications.

These unmanned platforms have endless amounts of computers, motion controllers, motion sensors, short range radios, satellite, radar, LiDAR, tactical communications and more. In all instances, these new, sophisticated unmanned aircraft must be able to operate in harsh environments, have multiple communications and motion control devices and, most importantly, operate flawlessly. 

The Techaya MILTECH line of military-grade compact and ultra-compact Ethernet switches have years of tested reliability–holding up in these harshest of environments.

Autonomous Ground

Robots have long been an essential component of industrial production and domestic law enforcement. They are now making an appearance on the battlefield as unmanned ground vehicles including: lightweight tracked robots; middleweight vehicles such as soldier-assist vehicles; and heavyweight vehicles such as autonomous tanks and bulldozers.

In order to operate in an unmanned state these platforms must have a sophisticated network of sensors, cameras, day/night infrared (IR), thermal imaging, and various other command and control devices. Techayas complete line of compact and ultra compact Ethernet switches deliver the SWaP required for every category while delivering MIL-STD reliability in shock, vibration, power and more.


Aerial applications face two key challenges that must be constantly at top-of-mind for design engineers. The first of these is the need to ensure 100% reliability in the face of extremes of shock, vibration, temperature and contaminants. The second is that, increasingly, these solutions are being deployed in environments that are small, and that need to minimize weight, power and heat.

Ethernet is rapidly becoming the standard for military and aerospace applications due to proven interoperability, reliability, and speed. Today, components such as electronic warfare, targeting, 360 degree situational awareness, ISR, visualization, radar, and signal processing are increasingly using Ethernet as a standard means of communication with each other and to manage traffic back to central command.

The Techaya MILTECH line of compact and ultra-compact military-grade Ethernet switches, routers and media converters are purpose-built for these rugged and mission-critical applications and environments. Our MIL-STD solutions are reliable, sophisticated and flexible enough for even the most space and weight-constrained applications.


Ethernet will be a key communications technology that will not only enhance the survivability of the soldiers, but enhance the survivability of the vehicles that will be used for infantry combat, command, reconnaissance, and armored utility applications.

Future vehicles developed for defense applications have amazing physical requirements that, at the core, are designed to keep our soldiers from harm—in any combat situation. From an “intelligence” point of view, these vehicles will have next-generation C4I solutions that include: electronic monitoring of diagnostic equipment, tactical data networks links and connection and monitoring of electronic tactical equipment including surveillance cameras, gunfire detection weaponry, vehicle monitors, GPS receivers, vision enhancements, and tracking devices.

Techaya’s complete line of COTS, military-grade rugged Ethernet switches, routers and media converters are designed to meet the connectivity needs for any C4ISR applications while maintaining a path toward VICTORY compliance.

Industry / Transport

Today’s industrial automation relies heavily on Ethernet-based communication between automation control and peripheral subsystems. Transportation systems must now integrate sensors, on-board computers, communications systems, and surveillance networks.

In any of these environments, any component must stand up to the heat, vibration, particle contamination and meet high reliability standards to deliver lossless Ethernet between critical devices.

Techeya’s PBC-based Ethernet switches and routers enables network switching capabilities to be quickly added through custom interfaces to any embedded environment. A conformal coating enables every switch to stand up to extreme vibration and environmental elements and are rated to work in temperatures from -45℃ to +85℃ . All embedded switches comply to MILSTD-810F/GM and MILSTD-461E when housed in an appropriate enclosure.

Unmanned Underwater Vehicles

Because of the obvious interference that water may have on distorting transmissions and the obstacles that underwater exploration may produce; unmanned vehicles have been developed as both tethered and remotely managed platforms.  In either configuration these platforms will have several sensors, most likely cameras, possibly data recorders that must all communicate with each other and a centralized compute platform. In all instances, size and weight are key design factors along with the fact that each component must be hardened to be able to stand up to shock, vibration and the corrosive effects of salt water. 

Techaya’s Ethernet switches are designed to stand up to any of environmental challenges.  Designed to meet both MIL-STD 810 and IP68 ratings these, compact pulg-n-play managed and unmanaged switch will create an instant interconnect beween any IP-based components.
