The success of any military operation depends greatly on ground forces being able to access critical information immediately without any signal interruptions or data glitches. They also need to charge their portable electronic devices as quickly as possible without any delays.
ADDED DURABILITY FOR LIFETIME PERFORMANCE
GORE USB Cables, 2.0 & 3.1 versions deliver solid signal integrity for high-speed data transmission up to 10 gigabits (Gb/s) without failure, ensuring critical Intel is uploaded/downloaded in time. Our cable bundles also support power management from 9-32V systems so that warfighters can charge their devices quickly and easily without delay. Both versions withstand the harshest environments because of the added durability in their construction, which means they'll last long after the alternatives have surrendered to the environment.
Long-lasting construction of GORE USB Cables
GORE USB Cables are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of military applications, including:
- peripheral / sensor networking
- portable electronic devices
- soldier system connectivity
- vehicle / dismount connectivity
If you have any questions or to discuss your specific application needs, please contact a Gore representative.
GORE USB Cables provide system architects and engineers with many benefits that improve electrical and mechanical performance such as:
- solid signal integrity for high-speed data transmission up to 10 gigabits (Gb/s)
- instant content uploads/downloads to receive critical Intel in time

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.
