(NASDAQ:ATNY) (“API” or the “Company”), a trusted provider of RF/microwave, microelectronics, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, announced today its new family of hermetically sealed circular connectors for aerospace applications with high differential pressure.  These connectors, from API’s Spectrum Control line of products, meet MIL-DTL-38999 fine leak requirements and are ideal for aerospace engine control, hydraulic, and caustic environments where harsh conditions could exist. 

“These hermetically sealed receptacles can be used in any application where harsh conditions could compromise the operation of electrical equipment.
