The development of long distance optical fibers and electro-optical components have made new approaches for ocean-laid telemetry systems possible. One such approach being investigated at the Naval Ocean Systems Center (NOSC) is an air-deployed fiber optic system (ADM utilizing a small diameter, repeatered, fiber optic communication cable, 1600 kilo-meters in length. This paper addresses the problems associated with the development of such a cable system, designed to be deployed by an aircraft over deep oceans and provide a telemetry path for information data exchange. Rather than discuss electro-optical issues, this paper discusses the issues associated with deploying a cable; 1 mm in diameter, and repeaters from an aircraft flying at 130 - 150 knots. The simulation of high-speed cable deployment, including hardware descriptions of winding apparatus and pullout test equipment, are also presented. Problems associated with laying small, ruggedized optic fiber on the ocean floor and the design of a small, ruggedized optical cable for such ocean deployment are discussed.
