Abstract:

The cables required for an air launched missile are as numerous and complex as the cables required for a large air-to-surface missile. Approximately 250 differently designed cables are required to support the Hound Dog Missile. Design criteria for these cables were established to provide a quality product at a reasonable cost through standardization of hardware and components. The nature of the checkout of the missile precluded the use of cable procured to MIL-C-13777 without deviating to the specification. Major procurement problems on this program were delivery, quality control and design changes. Author
