Paper Abstract

MIL-S-901 High Impact Shock tests were performed on commercial-grade and ruggedized fiber optic connectors, splices, and switches. Both singlemode and multimode connectors and splices were tested. Only multimode switches were tested. Transient losses of varying magnitudes and durations were observed. Most components suffered no permanent degradation.
