Proven Performance of
GORE-FLIGHT™ Microwave Assemblies
A recent study conducted for the aerospace
industry showed that more than 29 percent
of microwave assemblies fail during
installation, and aircraft manufacturers
hav

have
ve accepted the practice of simply replacing
them.
th
hem. However, with the need to decrease costs, they
can no longer afford the total cost associated with
assemblies that cannot withstand the installation
process and the extreme conditions of aerospace.
Manufacturers need assemblies that provide the
same level of electrical performance before and after
installation as well as throughout their service life.

Performance Testing with
an Installation Simulator
W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) has designed a
simulator to evaluate the stress of installation on
microwave airframe assemblies. The simulator has
several features that replicate minimum bend radius
conditions, routing guides that induce torque, and an
abrasion bar to simulate routing across sharp edges or
through access holes in the airframe structure.
