Abstract
THE TECHNOLOGY TO ALLOW REPLACEMENT OF PERSONNEL BY MOBILE ROBOTS IN HIGH RISK SITUATIONS IS AVAILABLE TODAY. THE ROBOTICS APPROACH SUITABLE FOR MOST IMMEDIATE DEPLOYMENT IS TO USE THE ROBOT AS AN EXTENSION OF HUMAN MUSCLE AND SENSING, AND TO USE THE HUMAN BRAIN BY MEANS OF A HIGH BANDWIDTH FIBER OPTIC LINK. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSED THE NEED TO DEFINE AN OPTIMUM LINK ARCHITECTURE FOR FIBER OPTIC LINK ELECTRONICS TO BE USED FOR ROBOTIC APPLICATIONS. PROPOSED WORK INCLUDES STUDY OF MULTIPLEXING FORMAT AND COMPUTER INTERFACE ARCHITECTURE. BUILDING ON RELATED EXISTING HARDWARE, OPTELECOM OFFERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROGRESS TO THE STAGE OF A BREADBOARD PROTOTYPE DURING THE PHASE I EFFORT.
