GORE Aerospace Ethernet Cables now approved on SAE AS6070 QPL for civil and military applications

W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore)announced today that GORE Aerospace Ethernet Cables are now qualified according to the Society for Automotive and Aerospace Engineers (SAE) AS6070/5 and /6 recently released for civil and military applications. This new industry standard supports the AS50881 EWIS (electrical wiring interconnection systems) specification for high-speed data cables.

NAVAIR (Naval Air Systems Command) is actively involved in defining the requirements and specifications of industry-supported common and open system architectures. These architectures depend on a reliable high-speed data network and interconnects that will reduce aircraft system upgrade schedules and overall cost.

Oliviu Muja, Aircraft Wiring Systems Principal Technologist for NAVAIR, said, "Reliable high-speed data interconnects are essential to operating new common and open system architectures. We have already tested, validated, and qualified Gore's Ethernet Cat6a cables for use in avionic systems for new and existing aircraft applications."

"We are pleased that our Ethernet Cat6a cables are now approved on the SAE AS6070 Qualified Parts List (QPL)," said Brian Tallman, Product Manager for Gore's North American Aerospace Team. He added, "We are also excited by the market response to the key features of our cables, like the small size, reduced weight, and greater flexibility. These features are making it easier for customers to route our cables in tight spaces of an aircraft without breaking or failing."

Gore's 10-gigabit Ethernet cables exceed Cat6a electrical requirements and are proven to deliver reliable signal integrity with sufficient margin for high-speed data transmission over longer distances.
