Gore
& Associates Inc. has announced
that its GORE-FLIGHT Microwave
Assemblies and GORE Microwave/RF Assemblies have passed stringent
U.S. Army flight qualifications on the MH-47 Rotorcraft.

The
6 Series of GORE-FLIGHT Microwave Assemblies claim to have a very low insertion
loss before and after installation. The lightweight yet rugged construction
also improves fuel efficiency and increases payload.

GORE
Microwave/RF Assemblies are also lightweight and easy to route in small spaces.
Therefore, these assemblies ensure long-lasting electrical performance after
installation and thus lower the overall cost.

Gore
has provided a complex harness, which included more than 100 of its rugged
assemblies, for the ALQ-211 SIRFC, a critical aircraft survivability system
(ASE) used by the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR). ASE is a crucial
requirement for avionic systems operating in harsh conditions.

Gore
is also working with the U.S. Army to provide high-speed data interconnects for
the 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, noted that higher
data rates are more sensitive to signal integrity issues during routing and
installation.

Gore claims that its microwave and RF
assemblies, high-data-rate cables, high-power delivery cables, aircraft
sealants, and shielding materials are significantly smaller and lighter-weight.
So they are more efficient at higher data speeds and more durable for
long-lasting performance.
