22 January 1982 Fiber Optic Experiment For The Shuttle Long-Duration Exposure Facility
Author Affiliations +
This paper describes two complementary fiber-optic experiment packages that are under development for orbital exposure on the Shuttle Long Duration Exposure Facility. The intent of the experiment is to take the first step toward providing the experimental confidence and design data necessary for application of optical fiber technology on NASA spacecraft and military. satellites. Four active fiber links will be monitored at predetermined intervals on each experiment, and other components and fibers will be exposed passively. Results from the experiment will be presented in planned future publications.
