Paper Abstract

The impact of optical fiber sensor technology and optical fiber amplifier technology in acoustic sensor systems is theoretically examined. An attractive feature of the system architecture studied is the fact that a majority of the complex optical components and electrical signal processing are located on the dry-end (land or ship) thus reducing overall system cost and enhancing upgradability. Calculated results are presented for a hybrid time-division and wavelength division multiplexed architecture employing fiber Bragg gratings. The multiplexing scheme, optical schematic, state-of-polarization effects, and noise terms are described.
