The Bureau of Ships requested the Navy Electronics Laboratory to test four different sizes of nylon-coated, surface-vessel bathythermograph hoisting cable, manufactured by the Danielson Manufacturing Company, Danielson, Connecticut trade name, Danco Cables. Preliminary tests conducted by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution had indicated that the nylon coating appeared to render the cable very nearly kink-proof, to increase the life of the cable, and to make the cable safer to handle. The present report covers the final testing program, which included tests of the cable at additional and more varied ship speeds, the conclusion of the accelerated life tests, and a correlation of the entire testing program.
