GORE® Fibre Channel Cables for Defense Aircraft

Proven on many airborne platforms, our low-dielectric cable geometry maximizes the performance of quadrax cable constructions. Commercial high-speed interconnects from Gore enhance noise immunity, improve EMI suppression and maintain signal integrity because successful missions depend on constant real-time communications.

所有资源 GORE® Fibre Channel Cables for Defense Aircraft

Overview

Today’s aircraft environment requires cables that can carry loads of data at higher speeds in advanced avionics. Aircraft cables are also subjected to challenging conditions and must be able to survive extreme temperatures, tricky wiring in less space, and harsh contaminants to name a few. Cables play a key role in system performance and can quickly fail if they get damaged or break, putting missions and aircrews at risk.

Consistent Signal Integrity

GORE Fibre Channel Cables enhance noise immunity and EMI suppression while maintaining consistent signal integrity at data rates up to 1 GHz in hazardous aircraft environments. We use the field cancellation properties of a balanced quadrax cable design, so our high-speed cables can transmit 2 differential signals within the same shield without interfering with each other.

We also boost durability and protection with our unique materials that resist high temps, harsh chemicals, contaminants, and more. Our cables are proven on many airborne platforms like the F-16, F-18 and AV8B. Aircrews can always depend on receiving crucial information in real-time with our cables installed in the aircraft they fly.

Low-Dielectric Cable Geometry
Smaller size of GORE Fibre Channel Cables

Low-dielectric cable geometry

Our innovative fluoropolymer technologies deliver cables that have a smaller diameter compared to dual twisted pair cables. These fibre channel cables have a quadrax design that’s 40% smaller, which also makes them lighter weight without sacrificing toughness. They’re built to last and perform reliably for as long as the aircraft remains in service. Our low-dielectric cables are also more flexible with a tighter bend radius making aircraft wiring much easier during routing for maintainers.
