The trend toward smaller connectors
One theme evident at AUVSI was the move to make components smaller and lighter. An example is this T Series push-pull connector from Lemo SA. Compared to older versions, here with the blue flashing, new versions (yellow flashing) have a smaller diameter and use a smaller mounting flange (top image). These IP 68 water-proof connectors are generally found in handheld and medical instruments that need to work reliably in damp environments.
