30 May 1995 Trade study of optical fibers and components for space applications
Author Affiliations +
During the past year, Martin Marietta Astronautics conducted an intensive trade study to compare optical fibers for radiation performance, to determine the availability of buffer materials for space, and to ascertain current capabilities of cabling manufacturers. In addition, we investigated single-fiber and multi-fiber connectors and backshells for multimode and single-mode optical fibers for flight hardware. The trade study included numerous literature searches and discussions with vendors and experts in the field to determine product availability of components and the manufacturing of flight harnesses.
