Abstract:

This technical report describes the FY 77 MITREESD Fiber Optics Technology Applications Program. The objective of this program was to define and demonstrate high-payoff applications of fiber optic technology to Air Force ground-based tactical C3 systems. During this program a fiber optic link for replacing 26-pair metallic cabling, currently used for 407L shelter interconnection and radio remoting, was designed and developed. This link was successfully demonstrated to Air Force users at the Bold Eagle 78 exercise in October 1977. Author
