Abstract : This report describes the design, development, and manufacture of prototype Optoelectronic Connectors which were developed for the Naval Avionics Facility in Indianapolis, Indiana. The connectors mate with standard Military approved receptacles and have their optical interface located within the contact assemblies of the Optoelectronic plug connector. These connectors are environmentally sealed and are intended to operate in environments with ambient temperatures as high as 125C. The connectors have been designed to minimize the temperature rise caused by heat generated within the connectors by light emitting diodes. The Fiber Optics Connectors described in this report achieve a high degree of interchangeability with standard MS components, are designed for ease of field serviceability, and are rugged in nature to permit them to function reliably in Military aircraft and other comparable environments.
