Abstract
A need exists for a state-of-the-art electrical interconnection assembly that will simplify missile manufacture and assembly at a reduced cost relative to current methods. It should provide thermal protection, facilitate internal individual EMI shielding from each bundle type as well as external sources, and minimize the harness-fairing profile reducing aerodynamic forces. Fiber Materials, Inc. (FMI) proposes an integrated assembly solution utilizing state-of-the-art composite materials. The novel electrical connector assembly combines the electrical wiring harness and harness cover into a single low volume, low profile, aerodynamic fairing that is conformal to the shape of the missile airframe. The integrated assembly will provide for efficient thermal protection, allow for electrical shielding of individual wires or wire bundles and increase mission assuredness while reducing overall harness assembly cost.
