Overview

NON-STOP SIGNAL TRANSFER

Get a sampleThe success of every airborne mission depends greatly on aircrews receiving critical information immediately without any signal or data glitches. They must also charge their portable electronic devices as fast as possible without interruptions.

Meeting 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1 protocols, GORE USB Cables offer non-stop signal transmission up to 10 Gb/s without interruptions. 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.

LIFETIME MECHANICAL PROTECTION

Aircraft environments can be extremely challenging for power and data cables, exposing them and sensitive avionics to brutal conditions. For added protection, we manufacture 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.

You can trust that sturdy GORE USB Cables will perform without failure and last long after the alternatives have surrendered to harsh environments.
