Paper Abstract

This paper examines potential applications of optical fiber for both civil and military application. Examples of prototype systems are given as a basis for the examination of future links. Cable cross section, bandwidth, and transmission distance tradeoffs are compared with those of coaxial cable, to reveal the relative merits of the two media.
