1310/1550 nm Single-Mode Radiation Hardened Fiber
This family of two different single-mode fibers is specifically designed for non-traditional data and telecom applications that use standard telecom wavelengths. Tactical fiber survives and transmits light even under extreme mechanical duress. The R1310-HTA operates identically to SMF-28™ with improved radiation performance. It is also EMP immune and can withstand very high electrical field strengths. All fibers in this series come with high proof strength, large Weibull modulus, and superior dynamic fatigue parameter to maintain high mechanical reliability (long lifetimes). To meet the challenges of the harsh tactical, avionics/aerospace, missile and UAV working environments, the fibers have high temperature acrylate as the standard coating.
