Abstract:

The second phase of the program to develop a Standardization Plan for Fiber Optics as per SMALC statement of work MMIRE 82-45 dated June 24, 1984 was to implement the recommendations of the first phase see first phase final report. Despite the complexity of the task which was unforeseen at the start of the program, the contractor applied a greater amount of effort than was required. However, due to the rapid changing fiber optic technology and the ever increasing number of systems, the complete needs of SMALC many not be met for at least several years. In order to SMALC to effectively carry out its stocklisting activities without the threat of proliferation, fiber optic technology must stabilize. This is not to say that interim standards for fiber optics should not be pursued or that fiber optics components should nto be inventoried. Rather, it does mean that extreme caution must be exercised in the development of such documents and selection of components for the inventory.
