W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc., has introduced a new, lighter-weight RG coaxial cable for aircraft communication and navigation systems, providing significant weight savings without compromising performance. This smaller and lighter profile coaxial cable still meets the stringent electrical and mechanical requirements of MIL-T-81790 and EN 3475-503. The cables engineered for electrical impedance of 50Ω and 75Ω also exceed the electrical requirements of MIL-C-17G.
The special cable design of Gore’s new RG coaxial cables facilitates easier routing and improved abrasion resistance for the cables. According to Remo Soave, W. L. Gore & Associates product engineer for aerospace applications, the unique jacketing material used in the cable’s construction significantly reduces size while maintaining shielding effectiveness, controlling impedance, and withstanding operating temperatures ranging from -65?C to 150?C.
