Abstract:

This report documents the results of an optical telephone feasibility study and resultant demonstration and includes the detailed design and fabrication of a remote optical telephone experimental subset with Talk, Hear and Ring functions. All conversions within the subset go directly between optical and acoustical energy there are no electrical circuits to effect the process. the optical telephone has potential in military communication links where security and resistance to radiation of all forms is desired.
