Paper Abstract

This paper summarises the design and development of an optical fibre package and ruggedised cable type for use in applications such as high speed or under water dispensing. The potential of this cable generic design is illustrated by reference to a multimode version developed for underwater dispensing. The overall diameter of the cable is 0.84mm and it exhibits a tensile strain of 0.6% at 180N load. The absence of a sheath gives a free-flooding design with inherent stability under pressure. Results are presented which show negligible incremental losses during manufacture, spooling and deployment.
