Abstract : The contract was originally worded in September 1982, and was for the development and fabrication of two types of TOW cables, one of open channel design and one of loose tube design. The deliverables were a 450 meter armored section of each type and a 200 meter unarmored core of each type. During the program it became evident that an additional design type (Interstitial Niche) should be fabricated and tested. As a result, in June 1983 the contract was modified to delivery two additional 450 meter sections of interstitial niche armored cables, one with five fibers and one with six fibers. The cable properties and drawings depicting the four designs finally chosen are in this document.
