In any military operation, cables must be able to transfer critical data at higher speeds while maintaining stable communications on mobile networks to ensure the operation and soldiers are never at risk. Cables also need to boost power and deliver dependable signal integrity in a smaller 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 troops can complete their mission successfully and safely every time. That's because the combination of durable materials in their construction enables a higher tolerance against rough environments, like changing climate zones and rigorous routing.
Low-profile cable design
SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT SAVINGS
Using our innovative cable technology, these cables have a low-profile design that’s 18% smaller and reduces weight up to 50% when compared to standard cables. They’re also highly flexible and easy to route in hard-to-reach places of a vehicle.
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 will be lecturing at the AeroDef Manufacturing Conference on May 1, 2019, at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California at 10:30 am PT in Room 203C around an emerging topic in the commercial and military industries. As drone technology continues to grow at a fast pace globally, high-performance tether cables offer new capabilities for many applications.
W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) has announced that complimentary samples of GORE® Tethered Drone Cables are now available with short lead times and can be shipped within two business days from the date of the request. Ideal for prototyping and evaluation, samples are available in 16-, 20- and 24-AWG configurations, with length options of 5, 10 and 15 feet.
Gore announces a new, game-changing cable option for tethered drones used in the military and commercial applications.
