All Resources For GORE® Shielded Twisted Pair Cables for Military Land Systems

Overview

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.
