Due to operating conditions in space that are the harshest imaginable, space programs must have complete confidence that the cables connected to critical systems will continue to perform under that stress. And because repairs are not easy to make outside of planet Earth, these cables must not only be rugged but also boast decades of proven success. That’s where GORE® Space Cables for Traditional Space Applications from W. L. Gore & Associates come into play.
Increase Reliability with Qualified Space Cables
Reliability is crucial in the space industry. Without reliable performance from electronic controls, safety can be seriously compromised.
GORE Space Cables, Type SPC for geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) applications provide the high-quality signals required in space missions — without compromising the safety of those onboard.
The cables are qualified to ESA specifications ESCC 3901/019.
The Science Behind the Cables
The key to our space cables’ performance is the proprietary material used in their insulation, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE). This specialized insulation increases the cable’s ability to bend and flex, while protecting the conductors from stress and damage. The ePTFE material also eliminates the need to trim frayed insulation, and its specialized construction reduces the overall cable diameter so it fits in the tightest enclosures.
GORE Space Cables, Type SPC for geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) applications are frequently used for:
- DC power distribution
- low-frequency applications
- optical instruments
The cables have been used aboard the Alphabus family of satellites.
