All Resources For GORE® USB Cables for Military Land Systems

Overview

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.
