GORE Connector Assemblies for Ka-Band in Space
Connectors designed for space communications.
Landenberg, PA — W. L. Gore & Associates has introduced a new line of GORE Spaceflight Microwave/RF Assemblies that have been optimized for Ka-band uplink and downlink satellite applications. The durable construction of the Type 5G Series of GORE Spaceflight Microwave/RF Assemblies provides outstanding shielding effectiveness and ensures reliable signal integrity with excellent insertion loss and return loss performance up to 32GHz. The assemblies have been qualified for spaceflight applications in three separate phases — integration, launch, and in-orbit to ensure consistently reliable performance for the duration of the mission.

The Type 5G Series of GORE Spaceflight Microwave/RF Assemblies can be terminated with either 2.92mm straight-pin connectors (ZMQ) or 2.92mm right-angle pin connectors (ZQA). These robust connectors have been designed to withstand the harsh environment experienced during satellite launch and orbit without compromising signal performance. In addition, the low-profile of these connectors will increase flexibility during the layout process of satellite design.
