All Resources For GORE® Microwave Sealed Airframe Assemblies, 7 Series

Overview

Mechanical, electrical, and environmental stress factors can easily affect cables and materials performance throughout the aircraft. The aircraft environment exposes cable materials to harsh contaminants such as fuels, oils, chemicals and other contaminants that can degrade aircraft structures and cause cable failure in sophisticated electronic systems.

High-Performance Cable Assemblies for Long Service Life

GORE Microwave Sealed Airframe Assemblies are vapor sealed to provide durable protection against the ingress of water vapor, jet fuel and other contaminants. Gore’s assemblies maintain low insertion loss, return loss and phase performance for reliable electrical performance over the entire life cycle.

GORE Microwave Sealed Airframe Assemblies, 7 Series

Construction of GORE® Microwave Sealed Airframe Assemblies.

The robust construction of our assemblies also provides outstanding shielding effectiveness against electromagnetic interference that can compromise signal integrity over long distances and reduce the quality of signal transmission.

Our 7 Series facilitates easier installation due to a small cable diameter that increases flexibility with a tight bend radius, making initial routing easier in confined areas of an aircraft.

All of this translates to superior electrical and mechanical performance, longer service life, reduced system downtime, and lower total costs for the aircraft operator.

Applications

GORE Microwave Sealed Airframe Assemblies, 7 Series are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of civil and military aerospace applications, including:

  • airframe interconnects for electronic defensive systems (signal detection, interception, identification)
  • commercial and business aircraft SATCOM connectivity
  • electronic payload interconnects including active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar

If you have any questions or to discuss your specific application needs, please contact a Gore representative.

Benefits

GORE Microwave Sealed Airframe Assemblies, 7 Series provide manufacturers with many benefits that improve electrical and mechanical performance such as:

  • durable vapor sealing prevents ingress of contaminants
  • flexible cable assemblies for ease of installation
  • easy routing in confined spaces due to small diameter
  • outstanding shielding effectiveness from durable cable construction
  • low insertion loss for a given diameter
  • maintains insertion loss, return loss and phase performance over entire life cycle
  • meets the mechanical and environmental requirements for airframe cables defined in MIL-T-81490
  • comprehensive qualification data available to support product claims

For more information about the benefits of our cables, please contact a Gore representative.
