Abstract : An investigation of current and proposed wiring and connector hardware and techniques was conducted by reviewing: FBW technical literature; wire and connector specifications, test data and failure data; military and commercial specifications, standards and handbooks; and by discussions with several aircraft, spacecraft and launch vehicle manufacturers. It was concluded that: hardware and techniques for the high reliability requirements of FBW exist at present or are in an advanced development stage, the FBW wiring requirements must be defined early in the aircraft design with adequate routing priorities, and special manufacturing and maintenance controls are required.
