AbstractIndustrial Data Link Corporation is presently installing a 3 phase, 30 Km fiber optic voice/data communication system for the Yuma Proving Ground (YPG) in Arizona. This system will provide a backbone communication system for YPG to transmit digital telemetry data and voice circuits between 3 test centers and the Base Dial Central Office. The fiber optic cable is being installed in three different modes; underground (direct burial), duct and aerial. Our proposed paper would cover the following areas: a.) System requirements --data channels (up to 56 Kb/s) --voice channels --future growth (video) b.) System design - component description c.) Installation d.) Test and initial system operation e.) Pictures (slides) and video coverage of system installation to augment the presentation f.) Cost and technical trade-off studies between fiber optic cable and microwave link as the communication medium g.) Cost analysis (ratios) for laying of fiber optic cable, dollars per meter for burial, duct and aerial h.) Summary of state-of-the-art of fiber optic component and predictions of future component/system capabilities for range telemetry applications. i.) The special characteristics of fiber optic cable links as applied to secure telemetry requirements on Government Test Ranges.
