FIBER OPTIC CABLINGSYSTEMS REQUIREMENTS AND MEASUREMENTS (Part 6: PARTS AND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT COMMONALITY AND STANDARDIZATION REQUIREMENTS) (PART 6 OF 6 PARTS)
|Publication Date:||10 February 2016|
Part 6 of this standard practice provides detailed commonality and standardization requirements of fiber optic parts and support equipment for platforms that use cable harnesses as the means to transport data through optical fiber among communication network devices and end user equipment.
These criteria apply to platforms in which the fiber optic topology (fiber cable plant, local cabling, and components to end used equipment such as WRA - weapons replaceable assembly, LRM - line replaceable module, LRU - line replaceable unit) is in the form of fiber optic harnesses. Larger platforms that route trunk cables through cableways and drop cables to the end user (application equipment), may cite other type cabling components as appropriate in lieu of the cabling in Part 6 of this Standard Practice. Surface ships and submarines, are to refer to MIL-STD-2042 in lieu of Part 6 of this Standard Practice. These criteria are intended primarily for new construction; however, they are also applicable for conversions or alterations of existing platforms. The rapidly changing state of the art in fiber optic technology makes it essential that some degree of flexibility be exercised in enforcing this document. When there is a conflict between this document and the platform specification or contract, the platform specification or contract will take precedence. Where platform design is such that the requirements herein cannot be implemented, users will submit new requirements or modifications of existing requirements to consider for incorporation into this standard practice to: DLA Land and Maritime, ATTN: VAT, Post Office Box 3990, Columbus, OH 43218-3990, or emailed to (FiberOpticGroup@dla.
