With many decades of unrivaled experience, W. L. Gore & Associates provides some of the highest-quality solutions available today in the modern aviation industry. Among them are GORE Cable Protection Systems for Aircraft. Comprised of crush- and abrasion-resistant materials, they are durable enough to withstand harsh flight conditions, such as fluctuating temperatures and severe vibration, and tolerate complicated routing in cramped electrical systems.
SUPERIOR LEVELS OF PROTECTION
Military OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and system suppliers now demand better protection for cables connected to avionics. But, they also want cables packaged in thinner, lighter materials to save valuable weight in aircraft.
Engineered with extremely durable materials resistant to crushing and abrasion, GORE Cable Protection Systems provide some of the highest levels of protection available in the aviation industry. We designed them for packaging GORE Aerospace High Speed Data Cables or industry alternatives.
Our cable jacket systems are durable enough to tolerate aircraft conditions, like complicated routing in cramped electrical systems, corrosive chemicals and harsh fuels and oils. They also defend against demanding airborne environments, like extreme temperatures and constant vibration.
During installation in cable runs and sharp edges in aircraft, our cable jacket systems allow high-speed copper wires and fiber optics to float freely without getting damaged or failing. They’re also highly flexible, offering tighter bend capability without exceeding the minimum bend radius compared to alternative designs.
These thinner, lighter jacket systems also contribute to weight savings and lend space for other vital systems in military aircraft. Overall, installers will find it much easier and faster to route wires and fiber wrapped in our jacket systems without over-bending or breaking them in tight configurations.
When you want high data rate copper wires and fiber optics that are routable and fit for missions, package them with GORE Cable Protection Systems for ultimate protection, hassle-free installation, weight savings and less maintenance.
Features & Benefits
GORE Cable Protection Systems are engineered with unique features that make them more durable against challenging environmental factors and aircraft conditions, including:
- abrasion-resistant, crush-resistant and chemically inert materials
- thinner, lighter weight jacket design
- maximum flexibility with tighter bending capability
Our jacket systems provide aircraft system architects and engineers with many benefits that improve electrical, mechanical and environmental performance such as:
- superior levels of durability and protection than alternative designs
- resist crushing, abrasion, and other harsh aircraft and environmental conditions
- allow copper and fiber to move freely within the jacket system without damage or failure
- hassle-free routing from high flexibility and tighter bending without exceeding MBR
- thinner, lighter jacket design saves valuable weight in aircraft
- designed for packaging GORE Aerospace High Speed Data Cables or industry alternatives
- compatible with M85049/88 connector backshells, adaptors and similar banding platform backshells
