Abstract : The report is addressed to the application of glass fiber optical waveguides to military communication systems. The technical depth of the report is not substantial and hence it can serve as an introduction to the subject. The report contains a review of military requirements, a review of the state of the technology, and a list of recommendations for further work. The latter is broken into two time frames, indicating certain tasks which have a bearing on the mid-1980's time frame. The report contains the justification for the recommendations, which suggest work that could provide the interface between the state of the technology and a workable communication system. (Author)
