Paper Abstract

The application of optical fiber technology on board naval vessels is discussed, with emphasis on the optical fiber image guides and optical fiber communication. (1) Optical fiber image guides, when integrated with traditional technology, may give rise to a new type of observation device with more extensive capabilities, and may provide a solution to some tricky problems in the field of shipboard optical technology. (2) The use of optical fiber image guides may greatly improve the operation efficiency of shipboard weapon systems, and may lead to a revolutionary change in the field of tactical weapons competition. (3) A well- developed optical fiber communication network will modernize the internal communication within a ship. Such a network constitutes a prototype for future intercom systems.
