Complex harnesses forámilitary rotorcrafts

May 2017 — US-American W.L. Gore+Associates, Inc. have announced that its “Gore-Flight Microwave” assemblies and “Gore Microwave/RF” assemblies for military aerospace applications have successfully passed stringent U.S. Army flight qualifications on the MH-47 rotorcraft.

US-American W.L. Gore+Associates, Inc. have announced that its “Gore-Flight” Microwave Assemblies and “Gore Microwave/RF Assemblies” for military aerospace applications have successfully passed stringent U.S. Army flight qualifications on the MH-47 Rotorcraft. The company provided a complex harness that included more than 100 of their rugged assemblies for the ALQ-211 SIRF C: a critical aircraft survivability system. Gore also provided a similar microwave/RF solution for ASE on the MH-60 Rotorcraft that is expected to pass US Army flight qualifications in the next several months.

Steve Blasey, Director of the Aviation Maintenance Support Office, says, “These guys jumped in and supported us when we were having some serious maintenance issues with these cables. We are impressed that we have yet to have a failure on a cable set that was routinely failing us.” Gore is also working with the U.S. Army to provide high-speed data interconnects for future APR-39 D(V) 2 Radar Warning Receivers on the Apache D model. Brian Tallman, Product Manager for Gore’s North American Aerospace Team, underlines, “Future systems will require higher data rates that are more sensitive to signal integrity issues during routing and installation. The Army recognizes that providing electrical margins and installed performance requires new technologies to avoid solutions that add weight.”

Platinum awardes innovations

The “6” Series of Gore-Flight Microwave Assemblies recently earned the highest recognition with a platinum award for product innovation by the Military+Aerospace Electronics 2016 Innovators Awards Program. Gore offers an extensive portfolio of advanced cables, cable assemblies, and materials designed specifically for the harsh conditions military personnel routinely encounter during critical missions. Products include microwave/RF assemblies, high data rate cables, high power delivery cables, aircraft sealants, and shielding materials that are significantly smaller and lighter weight yet more durable for long-lasting performance.

Gore is a technology-driven company focused on discovery and product innovation. Well known for waterproof, breathable “Gore-Tex” fabric, the company’s portfolio includes everything from high-performance fabrics and implantable medical devices to industrial manufacturing components and aerospace electronics.
