Abstract
A review of the TRW low tolerance alignment guide principle is given as applied to the existing Optalign(R) single channel, and military six channel connector constructions. In addition, recent developments in an environmentally sealed index matched connection scheme are described which offers multimode fiber connection losses less than 0.4 dB and single mode fiber losses below 1 dB. Details of the new TRW single and multimode splice kit are also presented, along with data showing average multimode fiber insertion losses below 0.2 dB in a rapidly assembled low profile package.
