Abstract
Wiring restraint devices used on all DOD aircraft are limited to polyester tying tape and plastic cable straps. They are applied at set intervals along the cabling to constrain the wire elements into a discrete, tight bundle, thereby minimizing its vulnerability to various types of damage. However, these methods are problematic in at least one of the following ways: they can be difficult to apply, constrain the cable too loosely or tightly, fail in various ways, generate foreign object damage, and lack suitability for areas with challenging environmental requirements. Innovative Dynamics proposes to develop an alternative method based on the use of advanced tape-like but non-adhesive, self-fusing silicone material. The successful implementation of this method will culminate with the development of the material, application techniques, and a specialized application tool to apply it to cabling for wide use in either factory harness assemblies or in-situ aircraft installations.
