XVII. Optic Fiber Communications Link Design
This study represents efforts to develop practical, straightforward guide lines as an approach to systems designed for point-to-point optical fiber communications links. As indicated in the document, the recently approved MIL-STD-188-111 was used as a model for parameter specifications, because this is the first U.S. standard on optic fiber communications systems. Engineering approaches suggested in the report will yield first order approximations of optical link performance, and should be useful in preliminary design calculations concerning choice for subsystem components.
