A Rocket Payload Cable Tester provides an automated method to verify the functionality of electrical cables for custom aerospace systems. This device reduces staff workload by automating data collection and result documentation for specific performance requirements, and improving test repeatability over current methods. The device will make use of Sandia’s chosen connectors, come with an effective calibration method to certify its results, and operate without any wireless connection devices to protect the confidential data. Current cable testing methods are tedious to complete by hand, especially when cables are ordered in bulk. Current methods do not support the dynamic and mixed needs of Saudia’s HOT Shot team.
The goal of this project is to analyze Sandia’s current cable testing methods and develop an automated method that addresses data collection needs while reducing test time. The device will be configurable for various data collection needs, automatically document test results, and provide an indication of test success of failure. The expected end result is a functional prototype that can be configured to suit the HOT Shot team’s changing needs and requirements. The resulting design and prototype needs to use chosen connectors from Sandia, come with a documented calibration method and certification of results, and address security concerns. Design documents and a technical paper for the device are also expected to be provided.
