Research concerned the design and development of electrical connectors for flat cables used to interconnect the equipment in missile electrical systems. Four connector concepts were developed and evaluated. Out of these four concepts, one connector was selected for further evaluation, pilot production, and environmental testing. The results of the environmental tests conducted indicate that there are certain basic deficiencies in the selected connector concept which require major design modifications. Although deficiencies do exist, much experience was gained in the area of design requirements and production techniques. Author
