All Resources For GORE® Shielded Twisted Pair Cables for Military Applications

Overview

In any military scenario, high-speed data cables must maintain stable communication on avionics networks to ensure the mission and flight crew are never at risk. Cables also need to boost power and deliver dependable signal integrity in less space.

GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables deliver excellent signal integrity for high-speed data transmission over longer distances no matter the environmental conditions so that the military can complete critical missions successfully and safely every time. That’s because the combination of durable materials in their construction enable a higher tolerance against the harshest aerospace environments such as rapid changes in temperatures encountered during take-off and landing.

Significant Weight Savings with Gore Cable Technology
Size comparison between GORE Shielded Twisted Pair, and the larger standard cable.

Smaller, Lighter Cable Design

Well-suited for aerospace harness applications, our shielded twisted pair cables are highly flexible and easy to route in hard-to-reach places of an aircraft. The exclusive design of our cables reduces overall weight by as much as 35% when compared to standard cables. So, wire by wire our cables have a direct impact on saving weight.

Because of their electrical performance and long transmission distances, our cables can reduce the need for additional signal amplification in your system architecture — further decreasing weight and power requirements.

Applications

GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of applications, including:

  • avionics electronics
  • cabin management systems
  • digital video systems
  • Ethernet networks
  • serial buses

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

Benefits

GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables provide manufacturers with many benefits that improve electrical and mechanical performance such as:

  • reliable high-speed data transmission over longer distances, minimizing the need for additional signal amplification
  • excellent signal integrity in harsh environments such as extreme temperatures
  • unique design that reduces overall weight by as much as 35% when compared to standard cables
  • highly flexible with a tighter bend radius for easier installation in hard-to-reach places

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