Modern ships are more and more fully equipped with auxilliary control and supervising sys-tems. These systems, in turn, are more and more frequently built with the aid of fibre optics. Fibre optics ensures proper reliability of such a system in a harsh marine environment. This environment includes: marine climate containing salt spray, mechanical vibrations and shocks, electromagnetic and magnetic interferences, changing temperatures etc. All of these harmful reactions may influence the system /worst case marine environment/ during a single sailing cruise. We will consider here the worst case environment for a marine-grade fibre optic system.
