W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) announced that its Gore1.8 mm Simplex aerospace fiber optic cables are proven to provide greater impact resistance in the most challenging environments for extended service life. These cables reliably transfer mission-critical data on military high-speed avionics networks up to 10 gigabits.
Built with a unique buffering system, Gore’s 1.8 mm Simplex cables resist crushing, kinking and abrasion, and they can easily handle complex routing, maintenance activities, and repeated flight conditions — unmatched by today’s alternatives. These robust cables also have a compact, flexible footprint with tight bending capability that meets size, weight and routing constraints as more high-tech avionics are being installed or retrofitted into military aircraft.
Gore offers a collection of single- and multi-mode fiber optic cables that meet stringent industry requirements for reliable performance on military high-speed avionics networks. Gore’s legacy 1.2 mm Simplex cables deliver stable optical performance in a rugged construction that withstands extreme conditions that can severely impact overall system performance. Gore’s 900 micron buffered fiber optic cables allow for a smaller-scale design preferable for inside-the-box applications while still being compatible with standard ARINC 801 termini. Lastly, Gore’s fiber optic ribbon cables provide durable, long-lasting protection with up to 12 channels while maintaining high-speed communications on networks.
Gore’s Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables complement Gore’s wide selection of high-speed data cables, including Ethernet, USB, HDMI, and more. The company’s entire portfolio of high-performance aerospace cables and materials will be on display at the Farnborough International Airshow, July 16-22 in Hall 1, Booth 1265.
