Fibre optics provide many advantages in conventional strategic, tactical, ground base and airbourne military situations. These include security, small size and light weight of both cable and electronics, lower power consumption of electronics and immunity to EMI, EMP and RFI just as in the commercial uses of fibre optics. In many military applications the advantages of fibre optics may be critical to mission performance. A major stumbling block has been the development of fibre optic components and systems that meet the environmental, reliability and maintainability requirements of military equipment. Bearing these requirements in mind, this paper identifies some of the techniques used and recent advances made by Codenoll Technology in producing fibre optic data links suitable for military use. Some general tactical and strategic military applications involving these data links will then be discussed.
