All Resources For GORE™ CAN Bus Cables for Military Land Systems


Seconds matter during any military operation, so armed forces need to know they’ll receive vital Intel in time or risk jeopardizing the entire operation and their safety. As cables are the lifeline of electronic systems, they must be able to transmit essential data on mobile digital networks as fast as possible, reliably and accurately, no matter the circumstances to complete the mission successfully.

GORE CAN Bus Cables enable high-quality signals for fast data transmission up to 1 gigahertz (GHz) in demanding conditions. The reason is our innovative cable technology that withstands environments like low/high temperatures, severe weather, harsh contaminants, repeated vibration, and rigorous routing.


Our durable controlled-impedance cables are 18% smaller and up to 50% lighter than standard cables available on the market today. A smaller diameter also means increased flexibility with a tight bend radius, making routing much simpler during installation and maintenance.

When put to the test, our CAN Bus cables maintain stable communications on mobile digital networks for as long as the vehicle remains in service. Ultimately giving troops a decisive edge and the confidence that electronic systems won’t fail during critical missions.
