Mission success starts here with innovative solutions from W. L. Gore & Associates. Our products have been proven reliable, weigh less, remain in service longer, require less maintenance and save on replacement costs.

Gore maintains global testing facilities to evaluate the performance of our defense products and ensure their reliability in aircraft applications. Delivering three areas of expertise — digital and microwave signal analysis, environmental and stress testing, and electromagnetic compatibility — we optimize signal integrity and other important parameters for our products.

We engineer our military electronic components with robust insulation materials that withstand the mechanical, electrical and environmental stress of maintenance and flight operations. Resistant to abrasion and cut-through, they can be routed easily during installation. During use, our defense cables and assemblies deliver non-stop signal transmission with low skew and optimal shielding, while our sealants effectively protect aircraft structures from moisture and corrosion. Our military products are built with expanded PTFE and demonstrate its unique characteristics to keep our products from reacting to broad temperature ranges and harsh contaminants used in aircraft. In a cost-sensitive environment, maintenance, repair and overhaul criteria are essential to reduce life-cycle costs and increase affordability.

Each additional pound or kilogram of weight on aircraft can reduce payload, decrease fuel efficiency and increase operating costs. At Gore, we’re careful that the military materials used in our products are considerably smaller, thinner and lighter. Some of our products are up to 60% lighter than competitors. These fluoropolymer technologies allow us to deliver durable, compact solutions unrivaled by other defense suppliers of electronic components.

Since the 1990s, our MIL-STD-1760 assemblies have guaranteed safe store operations and disconnect loads on many defense airborne systems. When it comes to the emerging electric aviation market, our high-performance aerospace wires offer long-term durability and higher voltages in a low-profile design.

As for today’s enduring fleet and next-gen rotorcraft, we look forward to collaborating with Future Vertical Lift Program stakeholders to solve their operational challenges.

Gore’s products simplify routing and reduce aircraft weight while delivering mechanical integrity and electrical reliability in the most challenging maintenance and airborne environments.
