In any military scenario, high-speed data cables must maintain stable communication on avionics networks to ensure the mission and flight crews 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 up to 1 gigahertz (GHz) 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 enables a higher tolerance against the harshest aerospace environments, like rapid changes in temperatures encountered during take-off and landing.
Significant Weight Savings with Gore Cable Technology
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 airframe. The low-profile design of our cables reduces overall weight by as much as 50% when compared to standard cables. So, wire by wire our cables have a direct impact on saving weight.
The superior electrical performance of our controlled-impedance cables can also reduce the need for additional signal amplification in your system architecture — further decreasing weight and power requirements.
GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of applications, including:
- avionics networks
- cabin management systems
- digital video systems
- Ethernet backbone
- serial buses
