Abstract
THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO ASSESS THE APPLICATION OF SINGLE-MODE FIBER OPTIC TECHNOLOGY TO MISSILES THAT CAN SEEK OUT AND DESTROY THE TARGET AT EXTENDED RANGES IN A LOCK ON AFTER LAUCH MODE. CURRENT FIBER-GUIDED MISSILE SYSTEMS ARE LIMITED IN BOTH DATA RATE AND LINK LENGTH BECAUSE THEY UTILIZE MULTI-MODE FIBER AND OPERATE AT A LOWER WAVE LENGTH OF .8 MICRONS. THIS STUDY WILL ASSES THE FEASIBILITY AND COST\PERFORMANCE OF UTILIZING SINGLE-MODE FIBER AND LASERS AT HIGHER DATA RATES AND LINK LENGTHS.
