Abstract : Compliant electrical conductors are necessary for the successful operation of the minimum width variable depth sonar towline being developed by the Naval Applied Science Laboratory. Experimental samples utilizing a braided copper conductor with an elastomeric core and insulation wall have been manufactured. Investigations have shown that these compliant conductors and conductor modules will withstand the repeated flexing service required of this type of towline. (Author)
