Due to operating conditions in space that are the harshest imaginable, space programs must have complete confidence that the cables connected to critical systems will continue to perform under that stress. And because repairs are not easy to make outside of planet Earth, these cables must not only be rugged but also boast decades of proven success. That’s where GORE® Space Cables for Traditional Space Applications from W. L. Gore & Associates come into play.
The extreme temperatures inherent in spacecraft can impair cables and their performance, so critical to any space mission.
Gore offers protective braids installed over cable bundles that provide durable protection in extreme temperatures, and enhanced EMI suppression for reliable signal integrity. Our high-strength braids are also smaller and more flexible than competitors’ braids, allowing for easier routing in the tight areas of a spacecraft.
Features & Benefits
Protective Braids from Gore feature an:
- ePTFE construction
- smaller and more flexible construction than competitors’ braids
- enhanced EMI suppression
These features benefit manufacturers and end users by providing:
- easy routing in tight areas
- increased reliability of signal integrity
Additionally, Gore’s worldwide engineering team provides sales and technical support. If you have any questions about the space cables’ features or benefits, please contact us.

W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) joined countless scientists and space exploration enthusiasts in celebrating the successful landing of the Mars 2020 Mission’s Perseverance Rover on the Red Planet.
W. L. Gore & Associates announced today a new solution that meets higher voltages as the trend continues towards aircraft electrification to reduce the impact of air transport on our environment. GORE® High Performance Aerospace Wires, GWN3000 Series, deliver the best combination of superior mechanical strength and outstanding electrical reliability without increasing wire bundle size or weight.
W. L. Gore & Associates announced that its GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies were recognized among the 2020 Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards. An esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the aerospace and defense community recognized Gore as a Gold honoree. These assemblies are being recognized for their durability and reliability for precision testing of electronic warfare (EW) / radar suites; electronic surveillance/counter measures; radar warning systems; missile approach warning systems; and navigation/communication systems.
Due to the ongoing challenge of COVID-19, IMS2020 has been moved to virtual with live streaming. A key topic at the symposium is 5G connectivity, and Gore will present a portfolio of reliable microwave/RF test assemblies for 5G testing. We’ll describe how our cable assemblies provide durable, stable, and consistent performance to ensuring accurate and reliable testing results.
