Design and Handling Guide Radio Frequency Absorptive Type Wire and Cables (Filter Line, MIL-C-85485)
This document presents design and application information which will allow optimized utilization of filter line wire and cable purchased to MIL-C-85485. Filter line wire is defined and design information is presented. The electrical and mechanical performance characteristics of the wire along with recommended harnessing methods and techniques are also presented.
Rationale: There is a need to update this legacy AIR, as the section 5 (performance) and 6 (harnessing methods) can be improved using updated EWIS methods and components. One of the areas requiring attention is the damage limitation and repair method for this M85485 cable type.
