Paper Abstract

A fiber optic cable splicing system is being developed for the U.S. Army Communications-Electronic Command (CECOM). The manually operated splicing machine and cable splice housing are designed to be used to repair communications cable under field conditions. The repair procedure is described, with the aid of photographs of the first working models of the splices and splice housing. Further work is being done to reduce costs and to simplify the operations involved in cable repair.
