Abstract
THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF REPLACING EXISTING DISTRIBUTED ELECTRIC NAVIGATIONAL LIGHTING SYSTEMS WITH A DISTRIBUTED LIGHT FIBER OPTIC NAVIGATIONAL LIGHTING SYSTEM. IT WILL ALSOVERIFY THE MEASURE OF THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF FIBER OPTIC DISTRIBUTED LIGHTING SYSTEMS. THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A SYSTEM CONSISTING OF THREE MAJOR COMPONENT GROUPS: 1) A CENTRALIZED LIGHT SOURCE WITH CONTROL WHICH CAN SUPPLY SEVERAL FIXTURES, 2) A FINER OPTIC CABLE TO PIPE LIGHT FROM THE CENTRALIZED SOURCE TO SEVERAL REMOTELY LOCATED LIGHT FIXTURES AND 3) SEVERAL NAVIGATION LIGHT QUALITY OPTICAL FIXTURES TO ACCEPT PIPED LIGHT AND EMIT IT IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE OPTICAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE 72 COLREGS AND UL-LL04. (FOR VESSELS OVER 50METERS IN LENGTH AND IN THE COLORS: RED, WHITE, GREEN AND AMBER). *
