In military scenarios, exchanging information over electronic devices is critical to mission success. Gore manufacturers high-performance solutions that deliver failure-free power distribution, signal connectivity and high-speed data transmission — proven advanced solutions the military has come to trust and depend on for decades.

Maintaining secure on-the-move communications is crucial to troop readiness, safety and operational effectiveness in the field. Defense systems in ground vehicles and electronic devices attached to military equipment must never malfunction, and neither can the cables forming the backbone of these sophisticated electronics.

As new technology continues to develop, the military is focused on updating vehicles to enable faster, richer tactical communications. The electrical components behind these communications pose their own challenges:

  • More components make space, weight and power (SWaP) more of a challenge
  • Smaller, lighter-weight cable materials often mean sacrificing mechanical strength and electrical performance
  • Damaged materials from abrasion and cut-through during routing in tighter spaces can lead to cable and systems failure over time

Other stress factors like fuels, oils, chemicals, and extreme weather changes can also damage cable materials, eventually causing system errors.

For more than 30 years, Gore has been a trusted partner to many branches of the military, delivering cables and cable assemblies with an optimal combination of reliability, durability, flexibility, safety and cost. Built with specialized materials, we deliver proven, lifelong solutions that continue to meet the military’s complex communications needs for today and tomorrow.

Our Product Lines for Defense Land Systems

Serving the armed forces since our first product was released in 1958, W. L. Gore & Associates understands that the success of critical missions depends on the reliable exchange of information over electronic devices. Over the years, we’ve perfected our high-performance solutions for defense land systems so that they deliver failure-free power distribution, signal connectivity and high-speed data transmission – crucial functions that alternative products can’t always promise.

Solutions Made for Defense Land Systems Applications

Troop readiness, safety and operational effectiveness all rely on the military’s ability to maintain secure, on-the-move communications for sophisticated defense systems in ground vehicles, electronic devices attached to equipment, navigational aids, digital vision systems, high-definition displays and more. Therefore, these systems and their cables must never malfunction – especially as new technology continues to emerge.

As branches of armed forces update vehicles to enable faster, richer tactile communications, they continue to turn to Gore. Our solutions have proven effective against many common challenges to defense land systems, such as:

  • The need for more components that pose issues to space, weight and power (SWaP)
  • System errors and failures due to cable damage resulting from the following:
    • Abrasion
    • Fuels and oils
    • Chemicals
    • Extreme weather changes
    • Cut-through during routing in tight spaces

Alternative cable materials that are smaller and lighter weight often force operators to sacrifice mechanical strength and performance, but not with Gore’s solutions. Built with specialized materials like our proprietary expanded PTFE, our cables feature a compact, highly flexible design that reduces weight and simplifies routing while transmitting critical data quickly and without failure. This enables defense personnel to receive critical Intel in real time and react accordingly to the situation at hand.

Gore’s Product Lines for Defense Land Systems

Thanks to their robust construction and long lifetimes, Gore’s solutions for defense land systems reduce the need for maintenance and decrease overall costs. Further, our high data rate products, like Gore’s award-winning Ethernet cables, support the latest open-source architectures and standardized protocols with proven installed performance and EMI shielding effectiveness. Our product lines include:

As the military continues to need higher data rate cables for its modern mobile digital networks, Gore’s cables exceed Cat6a requirements and deliver unrivaled electrical and mechanical performance.

Delivering high-bandwidth signals, Gore’s cables transmit real-time data and offer an exceptional balance of properties that make it possible for armed forces members to always have maximum situational awareness.

Meeting stringent defense standards and exceeding Cat6a requirements, Gore’s strong coiled assemblies enhance protection and performance with unfailing signals and fast data transmission for real-time situational awareness.

These durable cables promise long-lasting performance over the land system’s lifespan, ensuring that the armed forces won’t be confronted with unreliable electronic systems that can jeopardize their safety and the entire mission.

To ensure data transmission won’t fail during critical missions, our controlled-impedance cables withstand harsh environments and provide impeccable mechanical and electrical integrity.

With 2.0 and 3.1 versions, Gore’s USB cables allow for speedy content uploads and downloads, last a lifetime and support the latest and most sophisticated power management systems.

These solutions deliver critical Intel to soldiers on the battlefield while meeting the defense sector’s rising demand for faster data rates across all defense land systems.

With more payload options than alternatives and lasting longer in challenging conditions, our weather-proof cables allow drones to fly higher and enable operators to expand their lines of sight or coverage.

Gore’s hook-up wires distribute constant power with strong signals for high-quality, uninterrupted channels of communication. Our smaller, thinner wires have also proven to be indestructible in tough environments and extremely flexible for tight routing spaces.

Water, vapor, fuel and other hazardous contaminants are kept at bay thanks to these rugged assemblies, which also generate high-quality signals at precise frequencies and offer proven EMI shielding performance unmatched by standard rigid options.
