W. L. Gore & Associates’ lighter-weight RG coaxial cables for aircraft communication and navigation systems reduce operating costs compared to standard RG coaxial cables because they are up to 20% lighter with a 15% smaller diameter. The cables meet the requirements of MIL-T-81790 and EN 3475-503, are engineered for electrical impedance of 50 Ω and 75 Ω, and exceed the electrical requirements of MIL-C-17G. The design enables easier routing and improved abrasion resistance, while the unique jacketing material reduces size while maintaining shielding effectiveness, controlling impedance, and withstanding operating temperatures from -65 to +150°C.
