Paper Abstract

In addition to their small size and light weight, the unique properties of fiber optic cables such as immunity to EMI/EMP, high data capacity and ability to be non-conductive are frequently of value in applications where the environment can be termed severe. Environments of severe nature are encountered in military field communications, underground nuclear testing, oil refinery instrumentations, electric utility installations and submarine telecommunications. This paper discusses two specific applications where severe environment is encountered and reviews the fiber optic cable design in each case.
