Exploring Cable Assembly Shielding Effectiveness and Construction

Microwave Journal is a highly respected source for news regarding RF and microwave assembly technologies. In “Shielding Effectiveness of Microwave Cable Assemblies,” Pino provides readers with a stronger understanding of cable assembly shielding effectiveness, its importance and how it impacts overall performance. He also explores microwave cable assembly construction techniques and provides advice on the questions aircraft engineers, operators and manufacturers should be asking when choosing the right solutions.

GORE-FLIGHT® Microwave Assemblies for Aircraft

In many applications, the shielding effectiveness of microwave cable assemblies is often ignored. Often, this is because adequate performance is often assumed and rarely verified by manufacturers before products enter the market. However, this excludes solutions from Gore, as Pino explains in the article. All Gore products are prequalified to the most stringent industry standards, including GORE-FLIGHT Microwave Assemblies for Aircraft, which are available for defense and civil applications.

Proven to deliver high performance in harsh aerospace conditions, GORE-FLIGHT Microwave Assemblies for Aircraft are trusted around the world by operators, engineers and manufacturers. In the defense sector, they are ideal for airborne electronic surveillance, counter measures and jamming applications, as well as those involving C5ISR, electronic and signal intelligence, electronic warfare (EW) systems, navigation and communication systems, radar interconnects and radar warning receiver (RWR) systems. They are also approved for various civil applications, including Ka-Band SATCOM antennas and Ku-Band SATCOM antennas.

Thanks to their robust construction in a lightweight, flexible package, GORE-FLIGHT Microwave Assemblies for Aircraft are known to provide a host of benefits, such as:

  • Fewer aircraft production delays and failures, resulting in lower installation costs
  • Enhanced durability for high performance in harsh conditions
  • Reduced RF interference with superior shielding effectiveness across electronic systems
  • Elongate system life with less downtime, decreasing overall cost of ownership
  • Deliver lowest insertion loss at all times, including:
    • After installation
    • During use
    • Over the system’s lifespan
  • And more.
