Paper Abstract

A fiber optic cable plant installed on the AEGIS cruiser USS Mobile Bay (CG 53) provides the opportunity to study the long term effects of the shipboard environment on passive fiber optic components. The current study consists of periodic inspections of the cable plant, including visual examination of connectors and OTDR measurements of the fibers. Measurements to date show no significant adverse impact to the performance characteristics of the fiber optic components from the shipboard environment.
