Paper Abstract

The Navy desires to install shipboard fiber optic cables which will exhibit a service life of at least 40 years. The cabled fiber must provide predictable performance and display a high degree of reliability under adverse mechanical and environmental conditions. The performance and extended lifetime properties of the shipboard cable can be characterized through reliability models and service design curves. These models are based on fracture mechanics test procedures conducted under different loading configurations and environmental conditions. This reliability information will provide insight into the selection of suitable shipboard optical cable installations and will lend predictability to operational service life.
