GORE® Aerospace High Speed Data Cables

Cables & Cable Assemblies

Whether your system architecture requires Ethernet, FireWire, or shielded twisted pair cables, GORE® Aerospace High Speed Data Cables maintain high-speed communication on avionics networks.

All Resources For GORE® Shielded Twisted Pair Cables for Military Applications

Overview

Improvements in aerospace technology and the need for more power performance are driving the demand to update military aircraft with higher data rate cables. At the same time, cables need to provide consistent power performance and signal integrity in less space.

Well-suited for aerospace harness applications, GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables are highly flexible and easy to route in confined spaces of an aircraft. The unique design of these cables reduces overall weight by as much as 35% and cable diameter size by as much as 21% when compared to standard cables. Wire by wire these cables have a direct impact on saving weight.

The excellent signal integrity of our cables can enable utilization of smaller gauge cables in your system architecture. Because of their electrical performance and long transmission distances, our cables can reduce the need for additional signal amplification — further decreasing weight and power requirements.
