Paper Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the major fiber optic developments within the Department of the Navy, concentrating on developments within the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). Most of the fiber optic programs discussed were approved at the Chief Of Naval Operations (CNO) Executive Board (CEB) Meeting held in September 1990, and they include programs to develop standard fiber optic components and networks. These efforts are intended to capitalize on commercial industry products that use industry standards and open system architecture approaches such as FDDI, BISDN and FUTUREBUS+. Full military specifications will be imposed only when required, since both commercial and ruggedized equipments also will be installed on ships.
