This paper provides a description Navy's near term and far term efforts for shipboard fiber optic sensors. Fiber optic sensors for measuring parameters such as pressure, temperature, rotational speed, voltage and current are now being integrated into the Navy shipbuilding process. Sensing techniques include Fabry-Perot, Fluorescent Decay, Pockel's Effect, and Faraday Rotation. Multiplexing schemes for interconnecting different types of sensors are being evaluated.
