Overview

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.

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
