Abstract:

The direct injection response of satellite cables to low fluence X-Ray environments has been analyzed with respect to certain cable parameters and photon source parameters. Cable parameters considered were the following conductor materials, conductor flashing, number of conductors, gap sizes, shield thickness, dielectric material, cable size, characteristic impedance, cable type, and cable loads. Source parameters considered were spectra and angle of incidence. The most sensitive cable parameter was gap size. It was found that cable response was fairly insensitive to black-body spectra, at least within the ranges of black-body spectra considered. Author
