Abstract:

This interim report covers the progress for the first month of efforts to develop a machine for flat winding fiber optic cable intended for air deployment. This new winding technology involves winding the cable into a spool shape by winding successive flat layers pancake style which are placed on top of one another. This report includes a description of the kick off meeting held at the Machine Design Engineers offices, technical objectives of the project as they are understood at this time, and a schedule of milestones to be accomplished during the course of the project.
