NON-STOP SIGNAL TRANSFER
The success of any mission depends greatly on aircrews receiving critical information immediately without any signal or data glitches. They also need to charge their portable devices as fast as possible without interruptions.
Available in 2.0 and 3.1 versions, GORE USB Cables offer nonstop signal transmission up to 10 Gb without failure. They make sure high volumes of data and video are uploaded and downloaded instantly on avionics, so aircrews get real-time Intel.
Each aircraft USB cable also supports the latest power management systems so military personnel can charge their carry-on devices quickly and easily without delay.
Airborne environments can be extremely challenging for power and data cables, exposing them and sensitive avionics to brutal conditions. So for added protection, we manufacturer our RF shielded USB cable bundles with engineered fluoropolymer materials proven to deliver a lifetime of service. They can easily tolerate the most harmful conditions, like extreme temperatures, abrasion, chemicals and more.
What’s more, our unique materials are lighter weight than alternatives, so they won’t add unwanted weight to aircraft when you connect our military USB cable bundles to avionics.
You can trust that sturdy, lightweight GORE USB Cables for defense aircraft will perform without failure and last long after the alternatives have surrendered to the environment.
Sturdy, lightweight construction of GORE USB Cables.
