Description


Rare Communication Carrier Assembly cap, commonly known as the ‘Snoopy’ cap, manufactured by ILC in 1996 during the Space Shuttle era, with a struck-through label on one side, “Comm. Carrier Assembly, S/N 0101-10001-, Size 05, Date 12/96, NAS9-17873, ILC Dover 74897.” This unit does not contain any electronics. In very good condition, with general wear; this item was likely used for testing support and scrapped out after being used. This cap has been authenticated by Bill Ayrey, company historian at ILC Dover, the manufacturer of the Apollo, Shuttle, and Space Station suits. These caps were used to secure the ear-cups and microphones the astronauts used for communications, and the design was largely unchanged from the ‘Snoopy’ cap made famous during the Apollo era.
