GORE-FLIGHT Microwave Assemblies

GORE-FLIGHT™ Microwave Assemblies are cable solutions designed with an internally ruggedized construction made to withstand concentrated loads well in excess of those specified by MIL-T-81490. The cables are flexible and inherently resistant to over-bending, making the cables easier to install within the confines of an aircraft. GORE-FLIGHT™ Microwave Assemblies are available in Standard Series or 6 Series.

Specific to the GORE-FLIGHT™ Microwave Assemblies Standard Series, the cables have vapor-sealed, durable construction to provide reliable performance, longer service life, and reduced system downtime. Cables are constructed with vapor and liquid barriers to prevent ingress of oils, fuels, coolants or cleaning fluids. This ensures continued electrical performance in the harshest of environments.

Gore-Flight™ Microwave Assemblies 6 Series are light-weight cable solutions designed to have lower installation costs due to their robust construction that can withstand the challenges of installation. The cables’ light weight improves fuel efficiency and increases payload, and the superior shielding causes less RF interference among electrical systems. The 6 Series has also been qualified to the most rigorous specifications for airframe assemblies.

Typical applications for all GORE-FLIGHT™ Microwave Assemblies Include:

  • Airborne electronic surveillance/counter measures
  • Radar warning (electronic defense) systems
  • Missile approach warning systems
  • Radar interconnects
  • Electronic/signal intelligence
  • Navigation/communication systems
