The naval sector includes various types of transport such as submarines, naval vessels, ocean-going drilling platforms and cruise ships. It must be taken into account that aquatic environments place unique stresses on cables and other electronic components.

On-board environments impose a number of additional requirements that coaxial cabling products must comply with. This creates additional challenges in determining the optimal coaxial cables and connectors for shipboard communications, including signal-to-noise ratio, low loss, and shielding so signals from outside cannot interfere.
