Fibre optics improve aerospace signal transmission

Meeting the civil aerospace industry’s need for reliable high-speed data transmission cables in a durable, lightweight construction, W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) introduces GORE Aerospace Fibre Optic Cables. Engineered with a unique dual-buffering system, the cables withstand challenging environments and deliver excellent signal integrity for high-speed data transmission in wide temperature ranges.

GORE Aerospace Fibre Optic Cables have a robust construction that is smaller and lighter weight for improved installation. These cables are highly flexible with a tight bend radius for easy routing in confined spaces of an aircraft. They resist crushing, kinking and abrasion while providing reliable signal integrity before and after installation.

The fibre optic cables complement Gore’s aerospace product offerings including, high performance quads, Cat5E, Cat6A, USB3.1, HDMI 2.0 and high frequency GORE Microwave cables. Typical applications for cables include avionics networks, digital video systems, cabin management systems, flight management systems, Ethernet backbone, transceivers, weather radar systems, and in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems.

Jeremy Moore, Applications Engineer, Gore, commented: “Our customers value a fibre product that can survive the rigours of installation. With an exceptional balance of properties, GORE Aerospace Fibre Optic Cables are the choice of engineers when they need additional durability without sacrificing size or weight."

GORE Aerospace Fibre Optic Cables will be on display at APEX (Airline Passenger Experience Association) Expo in Portland, Oregon from 28th September to 1st October, Booth 328.
