A review of the state-of-the-art in ultra-violet conducting fiber optics and related system components was conducted with the objective of evaluating their potential applicability to solar blind, UV fire detection systems. From this basis, conceptual systems were developed and analyzed to assess the potential payoff of incorporating optical enhancement to improve the performance, and reduce the initial and life cycle cost, size and weight of such systems, and to effect detector circuit simplification and improvement in system reliability.
