This paper describes the design and development of a fiber-optic backbone being examined for data transport in a submarine combat system. Generalized network requirements were determined from functional necessities and the geometry and environment. Both commercial and research fiber-optic networks were then assessed to determine the state of the art and selection of candidate structures. The performance of these structures was analyzed and compared and a candidate architecture was designed and developed.
