DUNDEE, Scotland – W. L. Gore & Associates U.K. Ltd. in Dundee, Scotland, is introducing rugged 1.8-millimeter Simplex aerospacefiber optic cables for transferring mission-critical data on military high-speed avionics networks as fast as 10 gigabits per second.

Built with a unique buffering system, Gore’s 1.8-millimeter Simplex cables resist crushing, kinking, and abrasion and can handle complex routing, maintenance activities, and repeated flight conditions.

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

Gore's offers single- and multi-mode fiber optic cables for military high-speed avionics networks. Gore's legacy 1.2-millimeter Simplex cables deliver stable optical performance in a rugged construction that withstands extreme conditions.

Gore's 900-micron buffered fiber optic cables allow for a smaller-scale design preferable for inside-the-box applications that comply with standard ARINC 801 termini.

Gore’s fiber optic ribbon cables provide durable, long-lasting protection with up to 12 channels while maintaining high-speed communications on networks. For more information contact W. L. Gore online at www.gore.com.
