dc.description.abstractThis thesis contains an overview of the present status and possible future roles of fiber optics for shipboard applications. Subjects addressed include state-of-the-art materials and fibers, their optical and mechanical properties, environmental testing, design of fibers and cables and fiber systems. Specific shipboard applications of fiber optic systems are related to the Navy's Shipboard Data Multiplex System (SDMS) along with the advantages and payoffs expected with deployment. The fiber optics market is discussed including an economic analysis of fiber optic technology versus conventional coaxial cable. Present major advantages and problem areas confronting decision makers when considering fiber optic systems are outlined. Conclusions and recommendations suggest that the rate at which the evolution of fiber optic applications progresses is primarily a function of the aggressiveness at the system management level and the timely solution of technical deficiencies.en_US
