Paper Abstract

This paper reviews some of the current Military applications of fibre optics in the UK Armed Forces. The emphasis is on those aspects of fibre optics which have particular significance in a Military environment, for example security and Electro Magnetic Pulse Protection (EMPP) considerations. In addition, those normal attributes of fibre optics, for example low weight, which are of particular relevance, will be highlighted. During the course of the review implementations of fibre optics will be described to illustrate ways in which the particular attributes of fibre optics have been utilised in these Military systems.
