This project will investigate the potential for Fiber Optic Testing Enhancement for Cost Reduction by evaluating the commercial practice of using on an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) to replace the Optical Loss Test Set (OLTS) and Optical Return Loss Meter (ORLM) in performance of Mil-Std-2042-6 required testing for shipboard installations. In addition, the OTDR test results will provide enhanced data that are not currently captured resulting in reduced time for system acceptance and identification of potential faults for expedited troubleshooting and repair during construction.
