Overview

RELIABLE 4K VIDEO TRANSMISSION AT 75 OHMS

Our defense customers have told us that they need a dependable coaxial cable operating at 75 ohms while streaming secure video in ultra-high definition. They also want cables to be smaller and lighter to save valuable weight while being more flexible and easier to install in vehicles.

We listened to our customers’ demands and offer GORE Coaxial Cables that operate reliably at 75 ohms with controlled impedance. They’re specifically designed for 4K video interface systems in many types of armored vehicles. Our cables optimize signals and video transmission with ultra-low loss up to 6 GHz in applications like remote-controlled turret cameras. With proven outstanding shielding effectiveness, they also reduce RF interference among vital systems.

ADDED DURABILITY WHILE SAVING WEIGHT

Our 75-ohm coaxial cables feature a specialized fluoropolymer jacket that improves durability for superior protection against difficult conditions that ground forces typically encounter during missions. For instance, heavy snow, arctic temperatures, torrential rain, high heat, humidity and desert regions. These rugged cables also tolerate repeated vibration, high abrasion, hazardous chemicals, harsh contaminants and more.

More durability usually means thicker materials that can take up valuable space in vehicles and make cables stiff to route. But, our cable insulation is thinner and lighter without compromising on durability. They’re also easier and faster to install in overcrowded vehicles because of their smaller diameter that increases flexibility with a tighter minimum bend radius. Our cables exceed stringent industry requirements while also meeting SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) standards.

With complete mechanical and electrical reliability, GORE Coaxial Cables save weight and reduce your operating costs, making them an ideal replacement for legacy RG coaxial cables.
