What's the Future of Space?

The space industry is undergoing a radical transformation globally. NewSpace is both an evolution and revolution to further shape how we use space. It’s a phenomenon defined by rapid inventions, lower costs and rideshare opportunities commercially available for broader socioeconomics. Some estimates show that by 2030, more than 100,000 satellites could orbit the earth. Gore continues to innovate by offering reliable, low-risk solutions for NewSpace applications to help connect humanity and monitor the earth so that we can make better decisions about our future.

Cost, size, lead time and volume are at the heartbeat of NewSpace. This industry shifts towards smaller, low-cost vehicles and satellites with fast-paced designs and many rideshare launch cycles in low and medium Earth orbits. Now, commercial and government programs require appropriately qualified, reliable products that are affordable and delivered quickly.

A Technology Path Forward

Gore's NewSpace product qualifications logoLeveraging decades of materials expertise and risk-free spaceflight heritage, W. L. Gore & Associates blends the efforts between government, commercial companies, ESA (European Space Agency) and NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration).

With a technology path forward, we can help system and harnessing engineers navigate wire and cable requirements to overcome many NewSpace challenges. We offer appropriately qualified, reliable and affordable solutions delivered on time to meet your LEO and MEO program schedules.

From Launch through Mission Duration

Electronic systems aboard launchers and satellites need to continue working to keep us connected and monitor our planet effectively. The wires, cables and cable assemblies connected to these systems are vital and directly impact mission readiness and success. If a system fails, the launch is delayed or many cube satellites stop providing global connectivity and monitoring our planet.

Using innovative fluoropolymer technologies, Gore’s solutions have been shown to withstand the most uncompromising conditions they experience during launch cycles and missions. Some of our products can resist extreme temperatures ranging from -200 °C to +200 °C. Our solutions are also chemically inert, exhibit low outgassing, tolerate radiation exposure, and resist atomic oxygen (ATOX) — plus other common spaceflight and orbit challenges.

Wires, cables and cable assemblies must also help minimize problems associated with difficult mass budgets and tight installation paths. Our advanced solutions solve these problems because they reduce size and weight substantially.

Proven Performance to Overcome Challenges

Our high data rate cables deliver failure-free signals and transfer data at high speeds in many applications. GORE® Ethernet Cables are ideal for Ethernet backbone and telecommand remote systems. At the same time, GORE® Shielded Twisted Pair Cables work well in digital signal processors and onboard computing. Our SpaceWire cables can be found in command and data handling (C&DH) and radar sensor equipment. And, our XAUI RapidIO™ cables can be reliably used in data processing and digital video systems.

GORE® Hook-Up Wires safely and reliably distribute non-stop power with low-frequency signals in applications like electric power supplies, optical instruments and microgravity experiments.

In low-mass, highly flexible coaxial formats, GORE® Spaceflight Microwave/RF Assemblies with robust connector options maintain electrical and mechanical integrity in high-frequency and high-density applications.
