The success of any mission depends greatly on aircrew being able to access digital content immediately without any signal or data glitches. They also need to charge their portable electronic devices as quickly as possible without delay.
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 mission-critical content are uploaded and downloaded in time. Our cable bundles also support the latest power management systems so that aircrews 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.
