Measurement of Tactical Fiber-optic Cable Assemblies

AbstractIn military operations the demand for real-time applications, like video surveillance or video conferencing etc. in C4I systems are increasing enormously. Tactical fiber-optic cable assemblies are today a reliable communication means in the military field, fulfilling these requirements. On one fiber-optic link large data flows of up to 1 GBit/s can easily be transported between different communication centers. To make sure that the fiber connection is in good shape and ready for operation preventive maintenance is recommended and necessary equipment should be available in the field to control such connections.

Individual Cable Marking by Brugg Cables

In military operations the demand for real-time applications, like video surveillance or video conferencing etc. in C4I systems are increasing enormously. Tactical fiber-optic cable assemblies are today a reliable communication means in the military field, fulfilling these requirements. On one fiber-optic link large data flows of up to 1 GBit/s can easily be transported between different communication centers. What happens if the data flow is interrupted or heavily constricted? The Individual Cable Marking shows: » Identity of the cable in a bulk of cables » Effective length of the cable » Cable length left on the reel » The exact point of intervention in case of failure » And supports your logistics more...
