The Use of Fiber Optic Networks on Navy Ships

Posted by Paul Jortberg on Wed, Nov 16, 2016 @ 11:00 AM

Fiber optic networks are the main data communications medium on the U.S. navy’s surface ships and submarines. They provide the high bandwidth that today’s data-intensive systems require, as well as immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and significant weight and space advantages over copper cable.  Virtually every mission critical system on modern ships now uses fiber optic networks, from weapons systems to communication, navigation, radar and sonar systems, infrastructure management, and real time monitoring and control to enable a state-of-the-art navy ship to fulfill its mission.

Fiber Optic Networks Provide a Critical Edge in Military Aircraft

Posted by Paul Jortberg on Tue, Mar 08, 2016 @ 11:00 AM

Since the first days of military aviation, the mission has depended on maximum situational awareness so aircrews can “see first, strike first” or take evasive action. Today, that superior awareness depends on unprecedented amounts of data delivered and exchanged between aircraft systems in real time.

Optical Fiber Networks Take Off in Commercial Aviation

Posted by Paul Jortberg on Tue, Jan 19, 2016 @ 01:00 PM

A modern passenger jet has enormous amounts of data flowing through it to support the latest technologies in the cockpit and the passenger cabin. All that data has to be delivered at lightning speed, and that’s why aircraft manufacturers and airlines are turning to optical fiber.
