The 7 Series from W. L. Gore & Associates are Microwave/RF Cable Assemblies that operate from DC to 40 GHz. They have an insertion loss of less than 2.56 dB/m and a nominal time delay of 1.2 ns/cm. These cable assemblies are qualified for aerospace applications and meet the MIL-T-81490 mechanical and environmental requirements for airframe cables. They have durable cable construction that ensure exceptional shielding effectiveness of over 90 dB and are vapor sealed to prevent ingress of water vapor, jet fuel, and other contaminants and ensure that the electrical performance is maintained over the entire life cycle. These cable assemblies are flexible for easy installation and have a diameter of 3.80-14.35 mm that allows easy routing in confined spaces.
The 7 Series cable assemblies are ideal for airframe interconnects for electronic defensive systems (signal detection, interception, identification), electronic payload interconnects including active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar, commercial and business aircraft SATCOM connectivity applications.
