Abstract : The patent describes a compliant, nonstrumming, high strength composite cable for sonobuoy suspension system. Nonabsorbent relatively inelastic strands of textile yarn are bound onto an elastomeric warp strand by two counterwound helixes of textile stretch yarn. The inelastic yarn forms random transverse loops along the cable by protruding outwardly through the openings between the helical windings.
