Paper Abstract

A Tactical Multichannel Fiber Optic Transmission Link system developed by GTE, replaces multiwire copper cables used to interconnect military communication shelters. The full duplex system employs an asynchronous design for multiplexing twenty six channels over nine kilometers of tactical optical cables . The savings in cable weight and deployment time as well as improved performance and distance make the system attractive to the military users. Successful field testing has proven the superiority of optical fiber over copper cable.
