Abstract : This paper discusses the selection of a basic cable construction capable of continuous (10,000 hour) service in an environment combining high temperature (1000F), with hard vacuum (space) and nuclear radiation levels in excess of that normally encountered in space applications. The following five basic types of cable constructions were evaluated: Ceramic bead insulated cable with a protective metal braid or foil wrap; Mineral-oxide insulated cable with a swaged or drawn metal sheath; Braided glass fibre insulated cable contained in a swaged or drawn metal sheath; Braided glass fibre insulated cable sealed in flexible metal conduit; Braided glass fibre insulated cable with a protective metal braid or foil wrap.
