MIL-DTL-17 Cables, Radio Frequency, Flexible And Semirigid, General Specification ForThis specification covers flexible and semirigid cables with solid and semisolid dielectric cores, with single, dual and twin inner conductors. Cables covered by this specification are primarily intended for use as transmission lines to conduct energy in a simple power transfer continuously or intermittently. In general, these cables are designed for low-loss, stable operation from the relatively low frequencies through the higher frequencies in the microwave and radar regions of the frequency spectrum. Cables may also be used as circuit elements, delay lines or impedance matching devices. These cables are supplied under a reliability assurance program as specified in section 3.
