Passengers expect to download IFE content and charge their devices quickly and easily on their portable devices when traveling. Pilots expect to receive necessary data in the cockpit. So aircraft cables need to upload/download content and charge devices as fast as possible.
Added Durability for Lifetime Performance
GORE USB Cables in 2.0 and 3.1 versions equally deliver non-stop signal transmission up to 10 Gb ensuring high volumes of content are uploaded and downloaded in time. Our cable bundles also support the latest power management systems so passengers and flight crews can charge their portable electronic devices quickly and easily. Just as important, they withstand the harshest aircraft environments because of the added durability in the construction that provides enhanced protection for a long lifecycle.
Sturdy bundle design of GORE USB Cables
GORE USB Cables are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of aircraft applications, including:
- content loading
- data transfer
- digital video systems
- electronic flight bag (EFB)
- portable electronic devices
- power remote devices
If you have any questions or to discuss your specific application needs, please contact a Gore representative.

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.
W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) today announced the company’s involvement in the Mars 2020 Mission scheduled for launch on July 30 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. This U.S. mission addresses high-priority scientific goals for exploration to help answer the questions of potential life on Mars.
