I am trying to complete a Blue Force Tracker UYK-128 computer to install in a HMMWV (mil hummer). It has an odd hard drive connector and caddy. Has anyone seen or know what type of hard drive connector this is?

Looks like an LFH-60 connector.

I does appear to be an LFH-60. But I can't seem to find any cables or adapters or hard drive caddy's that use that other than video cables.

Looks like TM 11-7010-326-23&P is the manual but I can't find a copy online.

What's wrong with the caddy you have?

It didn't come with a hard drive or caddy.

Bummer. Looks like they're around $500 on the secondary market. Here are the markings on one:

NSN 7025-01-628-4384

Apparently they were all manufactured by DRS Tactical Systems Inc.
1110 W Hibiscus Blvd, Melbourne, FL 32901
Phone: (321) 727-3672

Here is a link to the specification document (PDF) for the entire FBCB2 system (FBCB2-JV5-0001) v1.0 (6/12/2008): https://govtribe.com/file/government-file/marketsurvey51171-applique-jv5-spec-v1-0-dated-12jun08-dot-pdf-1

Section (page 76) lists specs for the PATA RHDDC/Utility Tray: PU Interface
(a) Type: High Density Rectangular, MIL-DTL-28748 50-pins, Female, Installed on the RHDDC/Utility Tray
(b) Connector P/N: Positronic # SGM50FDS3NSS0000672.0
(c) Mating Conn P/N: Positronic # SGM50MDS5NSS0000672.0
50-pins, Male, Installed on the PU backplane

It also has the pinout.

Doesn't look like any civilian HDD caddy uses connectors like this.
Good news is the SSD inside is probably a normal drive.

Is it still USG property or privately owned?
If the latter, changing the port to something more commercially available would be the easiest route.

The only one I've seen is the ebay one unfortunately. It is my own personal surpluses computer for my personal vehicle so changing out the connection is an option. Will need to take it apart to see.
