Abstract:

THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW GENERATION OF DURABLE, EASY TO USE POWER CONNECTORS FOR BATTLEFIELD USE IS PROPOSED. THE DESIGN OF THIS PRODUCT WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH PERFORMANCE REINFORCED POLYMERS TO PROVIDE NON DENTING, AND NON CORRODING, HOUSINGS. RETENTION MECHANISMS WHICH ARE EASIER TO USE, AND MORE DURABLE THAN THREAD OR BAYONETTE DESIGNS WILL BE PART OF THE OBJECTIVE. CONTACT DESIGN WILL BE DIRECTED TO INCREASING DURABILITY AND DEVELOPING SELF CLEANING, NON JAMMING DESIGNS. ALTERNATIVES TO SILVER PLATING WHICH OFFER BETTER RESISTANCE TO AIRBORNE SULFUR COMPOUNDS BUT WHICH ARE NOT PROHIBITIVE IN COST WILL BE INVESTIGATED. CABLE FORM FACTORS WHICH ARE ALTERNATIVES TO ROUND CABLE WILL BE EVALUATED, ESPECIALLY IN REGARDS TO THE USE OF FLAT CABLE IN REEL TYPE DISPENSERS, FOR EASE OF USE.
