Prospective Applications for Fiber Transmission in the Military

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Emerging fiber optics (F0) technologies promise to have a large impact on DOD communications and information processing in both near- and far-term applications. Aside from the advantages F0 have to offer both military and non-military and non-military users (i.e. low loss, wide bandwidth, potential low costs etc.) other specific properties are particularly wel1-suited to military applications. Being dielectric in nature, the fiber is both noninductive and nonconductive. Thus., the problems of RFI/EMI and EMP susceptibility, crosstalk, short and open circuits, and terminal isolation that plague systems with conventional wiring are significantly reduced or completely eliminated.
