Abstract : Test and development were aimed toward an improved Field Data cable. Methods to reduce cable size and weight while increasing electrical and mechanical reliability. Existing Field Data cable has been evaluated electrically and mechanical ly. Several coaxial cable constructions have been built and evaluated to determine the effects of cable dimensions, conductor size, type and impedance on pulse transmission. The use of Litz conductors at these pulse frequencies does not greatly improve pulse transmission conditions. Testing has been completed on 70 ohm cables. These data indicate that seven strands of Alloy 63 with a silver plate will provide an optimum cable component at this time. A cable of this construction would improve the field data cable mechanically by approximately 1000 per cent. (Author)
