Abstract:

Optical and electrical systems of intraship information transfer are compared with respect to cost and performance. Optical systems are shown to offer advantages over electrical for point-to-point links in which security andor wide bandwidth are required. It is indicated that wide-bandwidth terminals can be built with commercial solid-state components for less than 100. The author recommends continued research in the area of optical integrated circuits and the development of military specifications for optical transmission lines and terminals. Author
