Abstract
FIBER OPTIC TECHNOLOGY WHICH HAS BEEN DEVELOPING OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, OFFERS SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGES COMPARE TO WIRE DATA LINKS: LOWER LOSS, GREATER BANDWIDTHS, TOLERANCE OF ADVERSE EMVIRONMENTS, AND INSTALLATION FLEXIBILITY. THE INCREASING DATA TRANSMISSION RATES AND DISTRIBUTED PROCESSING ARCHITECTURES OF NAVY SYSTEMS REQUIRE HIGH SPEED DATA BUSES. SOME MILITARY FIBER OPTIC BUS DEVELOPMENT HAS BEEN CONDUCTED, HOWEVER, MUCH COMPONENT TECHNOLOGY AND COMMERICAL LOCAL AREA NETWORK HAS NOT BEEN APPLIED TO IMPROVE THE COST EFFECTIVENESS OF NAVY SYSTEMS. THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL ANALYZE NAVY PLATFORM AND SHORE-BASED REQUIREMENTS FOR A HIGH SPEED DATA BUS AND DEFINE THE OPTIMUM BUS CONFIGURATION TO MEET THOSE REQUIREMENTS.
