Abstract:

This final report describes the development of tactical fiber optic cable assemblies. The effort was to develop a tactically deployable cable capable of a transmission rate of 20 Mbs over 8 km repeaterless lengths. The optical performance required to meet the requirements is a dispersion of less than 2 nskm and an attenuation of less than 5 dBkm at 0.85 micrometer combined with connector interface losses of less than 1 dB 1.5 dB at bulkhead receptacle. Experimental results of fiber, cable, and cable assembly testing are reported.
