The success of any military operation depends greatly on the flight crew being able to access critical information immediately without any signal interruptions or data glitches. They also need to charge their portable electronic devices as quickly as possible without any delays.
Added Durability for Lifetime Performance
With approved aerospace materials, Gore’s 2.0 and 3.1 versions deliver dependable signal integrity for high-speed data transmission up to 10 gigabits (Gb/s), ensuring critical Intel is uploaded and downloaded in time. Our cable bundles also support power management from 9-32V systems so that flight crews can charge their devices quickly and easily. Just as important, both versions withstand the harshest aerospace environments because of the added durability in their construction that provides enhanced protection, which means they’ll last for the life of the aircraft.
