Paper Abstract

Significant improvements have been achieved in recent years in the transmission characteristics and the mechanical performance and environmental performance of optical fibers and cables which have broadened the applications of fiber optic systems. Fiber optic cables are finding increasing acceptance in a wide variety of applications such as tactical field (military), computer interconnect, telecommunications, antisubmarine warfare, submarine, airborne, and missile guidance. This paper describes the mechanical and environmental design considerations in order to meet the multitudinous requirements for fiber optic cable installation in ducts, plowed-in and aerially strung.
