The fiber optic connectors covered by this specification are intended for use in military applications where their performance characteristics are required. The connectors covered by this specification are unique due to the fact that these items must be able to operate satisfactorily in systems under the following demanding conditions: 10 g's vibration, over 1000 g's of shock, temperature excursions from −40°C to +70°C and mechanically harsh conditions. In addition, these requirements are verified under a qualification system. Commercial connectors are not designed to withstand these environmental conditions.View Less
