These cables are qualified according to C21091 specifications for F-16 upgrades that require exceptional electrical and mechanical performance in harsh aerospace environments to ensure mission-critical success.

In addition, GORE® Aerospace Ethernet cables can be easily retrofitted into any existing aircraft structure, making them ideal for F-16 upgrades. They are significantly smaller, lighter weight and more flexible with a tighter bend radius for easier routing in tight areas compared to leading alternative cables. The individually shielded pairs in Gore’s Cat6a cables also provide enhanced electrical performance with lower signal attenuation and minimal crosstalk to ensure reliable system performance over the life of the F-16 aircraft.

When upgrading any aircraft, proper connector-cable termination practices are crucial to ensure complete and accurate high-speed data transfer. Therefore, Gore made it easy by developing step-by-step instructions for terminating their Cat6a cables with leading high-speed aerospace connectors successfully in less time with lower risk, which helps reduce downtime and costly delays.
