Cables & Cable Assemblies

The importance of a microwave cable assembly’s shielding effectiveness cannot be understated. Across defense, civil, and aerospace applications, it impacts the system performance of the aircraft and could impede upon data transmission capabilities.

Proving Installed Performance of Airframe Microwave Assemblies

Aerospace Defense Aircraft

When choosing military aircraft components, lasting performance is always a top consideration. Yet while many cables perform dependably prior to installation, the challenges of routing leave them damaged and ill-prepared for the rigors of the aircraft’s flight envelope. That’s why W. L. Gore & Associates developed an installation simulator to prove their microwave assemblies delivered the same reliability before and after installation.

Reducing Life Cycle Costs with Reliable Airframe Microwave Assemblies

Aerospace Defense Aircraft

Modern civil and military aircraft depend on quality microwave assemblies like those produced by W. L. Gore & Associates for reliable performance. Yet the challenges of installation in tight airframe environments can often degrade lower-quality cables, requiring replacement long before the expected end of life. In Gore’s White Paper: Reducing Life Cycle Costs with Reliable Airframe Microwave Assemblies, we take a closer look at how higher-quality cable assemblies deliver lower costs, greater productivity, and a host of additional benefits.

Avionics in Commercial Airliner

Aerospace

Today’s civil and military aircraft require higher bandwidth, controlled-impedance interconnects using 10 Gb/s Ethernet and other high data rate protocols. But, there are risks when using standard MIL-DTL-38999 connector systems to meet newer, more demanding high-speed data transmission requirements in avionics.

Gore’s Ethernet 4-pair cables support Cat8 bandwidth up to 40 Gb/s on avionics and vectronics digital networks.

Cables & Cable Assemblies

Future airborne and military digital networks will require faster speeds to transmit more data and video for improved situational awareness. But, OEMs are undecided about switching to a new cable solution to overcome speed, durability and cost challenges. W. L. Gore & Associates can help you adapt easily now and be ready for the future without transitioning to an entirely different cabling solution. Our compact, robust Ethernet cables can reliably achieve Cat8 speed up to 40 Gb/s during flights and missions.
