This Part of the Standard describes the construction, identification and minimum testing of fibre optic cables for communications and data transfer applications on ships and submarines. They are suitable for use as equipment interconnecting cables and main run cables.
These cables shall be suitable for continuous use within a temperature range of -30°C to +85°C.
The cables shall be suitable for use in flexing and fixed applications and shall have an installed bending radius of less than 1 metre.
The sheathing of the fibres in this Part of the Standard presents a limited fire hazard and produces limited levels of noxious fumes, smoke and corrosive products when assessed by the methods of test in this Part of the Standard.
Cables shall be radiation hardened when specified by the project officer.
Reference should be made to Def Stan 60- 1 (Part O) for the test methods preferred by the Ministry of Defence.
