Abstract : Navy personnel and agencies involved in the design and selection of pressure-proof sonar system electrical connectors, cable harnesses, and hull penetrators are noted. Military specifications, drawings, and standards for these components are listed. Factors are listed and discussed for the proper design of pressure-proof electrical connectors, cable harnesses, and hull penetrators. Procedures are provided for wiring and molding connectors to cables using polyurethane, neoprene, butyl, and ethylene propylene rubbers as well as polyethylene plastic. Outboard cable splicing and repair methods are detailed. Outboard cable harness test requirements are listed as well as cable harness handling, installation, replacement, and test methods. Quality control considerations and a typical failure mode and effects analysis are provided for pressure-proof connectors and cable harnesses. A listing of suppliers and personnel involved in pressure-proof cable, cable harnesses, connector, and hull penetrator design and use is also provided. (Author)
