The paper discusses technical feasibility of using fiber optics technology for underground mine communication systems. The emphasis has been placed on sensor dedicated systems for methane monitoring, fire detection, and vibration sensing. Communication system included video, voice and data transmission has been proposed. The test procedure and requirements for the fiber optics network in the adverse coal mining are given. The network has been developed and evaluated in a number of underground mine applications. The long term environmental trials and laboratory examinations have resulted in approval fiber optic network for in-mine use.
