Test & Measurement
Designed for test applications that depend on accurate, repeatable measurements, W. L. Gore & Associates offers GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies, which provide excellent mechanical durability and electrical performance. Our RF cable assemblies not only feature a rugged construction that prolongs service life, but they also offer high phase and amplitude stability for high-density and modular test applications at an affordable price. To optimize the performance of the assembly even further, they can also be paired with Gore’s available connectors.
Unlike Alternative Test Cables for Defense Aircraft
Gore believes that microwave/RF test assemblies are among the top mechanical and electrical considerations aircraft operators, maintainers, engineers and manufacturers must make. That’s because a study has found that over 75% of microwave/RF cable assemblies worldwide are frequently replaced due to damage during installation, damage during use, poor quality assemblies, connector termination and outdoor environmental conditions.
GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies has been recognized among the 2020 Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards. Learn more
Instead of replacing your microwave/RF assemblies multiple times per year, choose the right microwave/RF test assembly that will lower your cost, time and risk. Though many assemblies share similarities in appearance and specifications, GORE PHASEFLEX Microwave/RF Test Assemblies are the only internally ruggedized, flexible test assemblies that:
- Guarantee consistently high performance and long service life in harsh aerospace testing environments
- Have a construction that’s durable enough to resist crushing, kinking and twisting, while also preventing potential damage from exceeding a cable’s minimum bend radius
- Maintain repeatable, accurate measurements and stable electrical performance up to 110 GHz
- Withstand frequent connecting and disconnecting
- Perform reliably after extensive flexing, with some constructions exceeding 100,000 flex cycles
- Provide excellent phase and amplitude stability with flexure and temperature
- Reduce aircraft downtime by increasing testing throughput and mission capable rates
- Lower costs and reduce risk for R&D and System Integration Laboratory (SIL) by enhancing confidence in data integrity and reducing re-testing and replacing
Reliable Performance across Various Defense Applications
With proven performance that is prequalified and tested before hitting the market, GORE PHASEFLEX Microwave/RF Test Assemblies provide trustworthy results in a host of defense applications, including:

W. L. Gore & Associates announced today a new solution that meets higher voltages as the trend continues towards aircraft electrification to reduce the impact of air transport on our environment. GORE® High Performance Aerospace Wires, GWN3000 Series, deliver the best combination of superior mechanical strength and outstanding electrical reliability without increasing wire bundle size or weight.
W. L. Gore & Associates announced that its GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies were recognized among the 2020 Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards. An esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the aerospace and defense community recognized Gore as a Gold honoree. These assemblies are being recognized for their durability and reliability for precision testing of electronic warfare (EW) / radar suites; electronic surveillance/counter measures; radar warning systems; missile approach warning systems; and navigation/communication systems.
Due to the ongoing challenge of COVID-19, IMS2020 has been moved to virtual with live streaming. A key topic at the symposium is 5G connectivity, and Gore will present a portfolio of reliable microwave/RF test assemblies for 5G testing. We’ll describe how our cable assemblies provide durable, stable, and consistent performance to ensuring accurate and reliable testing results.
W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) today announced the company’s involvement in the Mars 2020 Mission scheduled for launch on July 30 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. This U.S. mission addresses high-priority scientific goals for exploration to help answer the questions of potential life on Mars.
