Paper Abstract

The considerations involved in the optimization of the design of an optical fiber for a data link for missile guidance applications are outlined. An analytical model relating spooling induced excess loss to fiber core diameter is developed. Experimental results describing the effect of fiber core diameter on spooling and coupling losses are reviewed.
