W. L. Gore & Associates played a key role in the Apollo 11 mission and will feature their Apollo story and artifacts at IMS2019, June 4-6, at the Boston Convention Center, Boston, Mass., Booth 841.  Additionally, Gore will showcase products for 5G and aerospace & defense testing--preferred solutions because they can dependably operate at higher frequencies, perform reliably over time, and survive when it really matters.

Gore’s contributions to space exploration began very early in its history. In just 10 years, the company went from a Delaware basement where the company was founded in 1958, to the moon with multiple products contributing to the success of the July 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing. Gore wire and cable supported getting men to the moon, was involved in the seismographic experiments on the moon and helped the astronauts to navigate back home.  

From the first seismographic testing on the moon through today, Gore has maintained an unwavering commitment to product performance in many businesses, including aerospace and semiconductor industries, to name a few.  In the 50 years since the Apollo 11 mission, Gore has supported more than 100 spaceflight programs, including manned spaceflight programs and satellites that provide communications and scientific benefits to the world.  Throughout all, Gore products have had a 100 percent success-rate in space.

Gore’s marketing communications leader, Jennifer Haupt shares, “Our 60 years of material science expertise has allowed us to create products with distinct properties well suited for aerospace, as well as for many other applications that cross a variety of industries. During this anniversary year, we are highlighting our involvement with this historic event as a way to demonstrate our legacy not only in space exploration but also our continued efforts in materials science that are making a difference today and into the future.”
