To maintain operation of essential aviation systems, aerospace wire and cable must deliver high-speed data transfer and a rugged design. GORE USB Cables for Aircraft from W. L. Gore & Associates keep up with these demands with nonstop signal transmission up to 10 Gb and rapid charging to keep devices powered for crew and passengers alike. Thanks to a rugged design tested to the most rigorous industry standards, our USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 cables withstand a lifetime of exposure to harsh aerospace environments while continuously providing reliable performance.
NON-STOP SIGNAL TRANSFER
The success of any mission depends greatly on aircrews receiving critical information immediately without any signal or data glitches. They also need to charge their portable devices as fast as possible without interruptions.
Available in 2.0 and 3.1 versions, GORE USB Cables offer nonstop signal transmission up to 10 Gb without failure. They make sure high volumes of data and video are uploaded and downloaded instantly on avionics, so aircrews get real-time Intel.
Both versions of our cable bundles also support the latest power management systems so military personnel can charge carry-on devices quickly, easily and without delays.
Airborne environments can be extremely challenging for power and data cables, exposing them and sensitive avionics to brutal conditions. So for added protection, we manufacturer our USB cables 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.
What’s more, our unique materials are lighter weight than alternatives, so they won’t add unwanted weight to aircraft when connected to avionics.
You can trust that sturdy, lightweight GORE USB Cables for defense aircraft will perform without failure and last long after the alternatives have surrendered to the environment.
