All Resources For GORE® Aerospace USB Cables for Military Applications


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.

More Data Faster Over Greater Distances

With approved aerospace materials, Gore’s 2.0 and 3.1 versions carry more data over greater distances at faster speeds. They deliver dependable signal integrity for high-speed data transmission up to 10 gigabits, ensuring critical Intel is uploaded and downloaded in time. Our cable bundles also support power management from 9-32V systems so that flight crew can charge their devices quickly and easily. Just as important, they withstand the harshest aerospace environments because of the added durability in their construction, which means they’ll last for the life of the aircraft.

Both USB versions feature an exclusive cable jacket material and high-density construction that dramatically reduces diameter and weight. Our cable bundles are also highly flexible with a bend radius that’s tighter making routing easier for maintainers during installation in confined areas of new and existing aircraft.
