Paper Abstract

The majority of the fiber optic effort for the Space Station is contained in the Data Management System and the Communications and Tracking System. This paper describes the functional requirements and architecture for each fiber optic system. Design and environmental concerns unique to the Space Station will be emphasized. Finally, possible uses for fiber optic sensors are discussed.
