Paper Abstract

The world that we live in has no boundaries and when a calamity strikes, all nations are immediately informed and volunteer their help. From our experience the restoration of communications systems is the key since it restores connectivity with the outside world and establishes a damage assessment with further identification of needs. In the environmental sector fiber optic sensors technology is widely utilized to detect various hazardous materials and radiation levels. Teleoperated robotic vehicles are used to perform key tasks in contaminated environments such as nuclear power generating plants. This paper addresses the development of a fiber optic video and audio link for adverse environment applications.
