Paper Abstract

The Army is actively engaged in the development of fiber optics for tactical communications. Efforts have been underway in the development of fiber optic components that satisfy the unique requirements of the military environment. The major issues related to survival of fiber optics in the field are discussed. The militarized cable and connector, and underlying needs for high strength, fatigue resistant optical fibers able to survive the tactical nuclear environment are presented.
