The article discusses the process of building metal boxes with electronic devices in it and used in aircraft and space vehicles. The process involves the use of connectors that should not be mismatched or it may destroy electrical circuits in the aircraft. The author mentions the project he and his colleagues made while working at a military electronics company where they analyzed the impact when connector signal on one box was connected to another.
