Aerospace & Defence

Cables used in a variety of aerospace and defence applications often need to conform to special requirements and rigorous approval and procurement processes. Specific tests are applied to them to address the need to cope with high performance, lightweight and aggressive environments.

The BASEC name is synonymous with quality and safety and our cable testing enables you to demonstrate to your clients that your cables meet the required standards and will deliver ongoing reliable service.

We have been operating independently in the cable industry for over 45 years and the rigour that we apply to our testing and auditing means BASEC approved cable can be specified with confidence.
