Paper Abstract

The Fiber Optic Gyros (FOG) automatic optical assembly station that automates fiber preparation, splicing, rejacketing, and strength testing will be covered in this paper. The station will also encompass a console/work area where an operator can interface with the machine. By ergonomic design of the auto optical assembly station, an operator can easily gain access to the optical tray and work in parallel while the station is in the automatic mode. The goal is to reduce labor content from 160 minutes to 20 minutes per FOG triax for splicing.
