Paper Abstract

This paper reveals performance capabilities of critical fiber optic components and photonic devices, which have potential applications in industrial, commercial and military systems and equipment. These devices are widely used in battlefield, space surveillance, medical diagnosis, crime fighting, and detection of terrorist activities. Performance capabilities of fiber optic components for possible applications in WDM and DWDM systems are summarized. Photonic devices and sensor for forward battlefield applications are identified with emphasis on performance and reliability. Performance parameters of Erbium-doped fiber amplifiers, Erbium doped waveguide amplifiers, and optical hybrid amplifiers comprising of EDFAs and Raman amplifiers are discussed withe emphasis on bandwidth, gain-flatness, data handling capability, channel capacity and cost-effectiveness.
