New GORE fiber optic cables exceed strict requirements for defense aircraft

W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) announces the new GORE Fiber Optic Cables, 1.8 mm Simplex with high impact-resistance for extreme defense aircraft environments. This version is proven to exceed new stringent JN1177 and EN4641-301 industry standards for more durability while maintaining high-bandwidth data and video transmission on 10-Gb avionics networks.

Added Durability. Enhanced Protection.

With a unique buffering system, Gore's 1.8 mm Simplex exceeds the minimum weight impact requirements specified in these standards for enhanced crush and impact protection while retaining its original optical properties. This version is also resistant to abrasion, scrapes, aggressive chemicals, and undesirable fluids that aircraft typically experience during complex installation, maintenance activities, and repeated flight conditions. Even after exposure to a wide range of temperatures, this rugged cable endured high-intensity vibration and mechanical shock without degradation or optical loss. The combination of Gore's unique cable materials also increases fiber movement under compression that improves termination with standard aerospace connector systems.

Prototyping & Evaluation

Complimentary samples of GORE Fiber Optic Cables for defense aircraft are available, including the 1.8 mm and 1.2 mm Simplex, 900 micron, and Ribbon cables. All of Gore's rugged fiber optic cables have compact, flexible footprints with tight bending capability that meet size, weight and routing constraints as more high-tech avionics are installed or retrofitted in defense aircraft.
