GORE Tethered Drone Cables offer durable, low-weight hybrid solutions that support commercial and military drone applications such as news, events, search/rescue, signals intelligence, EO/IR sensors, and more. The assemblies strike a balance by combining power and fiber optic cables with durable, lighter-weight materials in a hybrid solution that provides significant benefits. These high-performance cables maximize Tether Management System (TMS) availability, provide more design options and payload, and enable greater drone operational capability.
High Performance and Durability in Lightweight Package
GORE Tethered Drone Cables have a unique design that significantly reduces size and weight without sacrificing mechanical durability and electrical performance. Gore’s cables are also proven to provide greater weight stability in harsh fluids compared to standard nylon cables, further increasing design/payload options and operating height.

Better Protection for Longer Life
Gore’s rugged tethered drone cables deliver non-stop power, secure signals, and continuous data transmission over the drone’s lifetime. These cables are engineered with high-strength and weather-proof materials that withstand crushing, abrasion, repeated reeling, extreme temperatures, humidity, rain, snow, and tough terrain. In addition, Gore’s patent-pending fiber braid cable jacket is low friction and resists abrasion induced during operation or by the TMS.
