Abstract : A fiber optic hull penetrator comprises a penetrator insert and a penetrator plug that each have fiber alignment inserts mounted, molded or adhered to them. The penetrator insert and penetrator plug are designed to provide strain relief to the cable, spring loading to the fiber alignment inserts, and a waterproof pressure boundary seal when subjected to the submarine ocean and combatant environment. Each fiber alignment insert is a solid slug of material to which anchor pin holes, strength member holes, locating key holes have been added to which suitable components are affixed or inserted.
