Abstract
Optical cable communications Systems have progressed to where they can be effectively employed in tactical(highly mobile) communications systems. The goal of a current Marine Corps program is to examine the replacement of CX-4566 (26-pair local distribution cable) with a fiber optic cable system. This replacement would reduce electromagnetic and radio frequency interference and crosstalk. However, the most significant benefit of fiber cable in tactical communications is the better than 10:1 saving in size and weight. This paper describes a demonstration system developed to replace CX-4566 cable assemblies. The fiber optic demonstration system is designed to interface with specific Marine Corps tactical communication shelters. The system mounts externally on the signal entry panel allowing operation with either metalic or fiber optic cable assemblies.
