Gore's fiber optic 1.8mm simplex cables achieve NextGen performance in durable, lightweight package

Gore aerospace fiber optic cables, 1.8 mm simplex by W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) are proven to perform at the highest levels in the most challenging civil aviation environments. These cables reliably transfer critical data on high-speed avionics networks up to 100 Gbps and beyond, while providing significant weight and cost savings over traditional copper cable and ruggedized fiber optic cables.

With the advancements in modern digital networks and passenger demand for faster access to in-flight entertainment (IFE), cables need to deliver higher data rates over longer distances. At the same time, they need to provide consistent signal integrity in less space and at lower weight.

"As onboard systems become more data intensive, the speed demands are simply beyond physics of copper cable," said Jeremy Moore, Global Product Specialist with Gore. "Our Fiber Optic solution provides significant weight and cost savings over the life of an aircraft, while meeting the rigorous demands of in-flight operation."

Gore Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables withstand the challenging environments they encounter throughout an aircraft's service life. They deliver excellent signal integrity for high-speed data transmission in a wide range of temperatures.

Added durability

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 ruggedized alternatives. These robust cables also have a compact, flexible footprint with installed robustness that meets size, weight and routing constraints as more high-tech avionics are being installed or retrofitted into civil aircraft.


Gore Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of civil aerospace applications, including avionics networks; cabin management systems; digital video systems; flight management systems; in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems; Ethernet backbone; transceivers; and weather radar systems.

Gore Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables complement Gore's wide selection of Cables and Assemblies, including Ethernet, USB, HDMI, and more.
