Abstract : This report describes a condition responsive line array cable having pairs of conductors containing, hollow braided strands plaited into a hollow braid in which transducer mounts are enmeshed and gripped. The mounts comprise a rigid plastic tubular housing in which a rubber jacketed transducer is resiliently suspended by elastomeric projections. Resiliently flexible, hollow, tapered, rubber fairings extend from each end of the housing and are slit to admit wires pulled from a cable strand. The fairings are long relative to the housing diameter and are retained assembled with the housing by cooperating ribs and grooves. (Author)
