Abstract:

A large core optical fiber is desired that is capable of withstanding flame and smoke generation requirements as defined in military specifications for Naval applications and that maintains optical efficiency and mechanical flexibility similar to or better than current Large Core Plastic Optical Fiber (LCPOF) technology. In Phase I, Fiberstars will analyze and define the standards and test methods associated with smoke and flame risk. Perform research on the feasibility of materials, techniques and manufacturing processes available to achieve the required flammability requirements. Develop matrix of approaches that correspond to and allow for satisfaction of specifications of the standard. In Phase II, we will develop the cable design and fabricate prototype quantities available for performance and environmental testing. Conduct appropriate flammability and smoke generation testing on the prototype samples and characterize performance.
