Abstract
ABSTRACT: A method of fabricating highly conductive and shielding electrical conduit and associated fittings is proposed. The technology will be based upon creating conductive composite tubes and fittings. Such composites have proven their ability to shield as well as their aluminum counterparts at about 1/3 the weight. Both rigid and flexible versions will be developed. Cables will be secured and tested in the new conduits. BENEFIT: Will result in very lightweight composite conduit for HPM shielding. Weight savings of 50% to 75% over current technologies.
