Paper Abstract

The Navy has been involved in the exploitation of fiber optics over the decade for which many of the developmental efforts have represented a significant breakthrough in technology and also for applications. Significant among the Navy initiatives has been the effort of the AEGIS Program Office of the Naval Sea Systems Command located in Washington D.C. This paper presents some of these developmental efforts coming out of initiatives. The efforts lead to the implementation of some demonstrations aboard the AEGIS Cruisers for shipboard evaluation purposes. The program objectives were met and the efforts were considered successful demonstrations of the performance of fiber optics aboard a Navy ship.
