Abstract
High Speed Multi-Channel Fiber-Optic Transmitter (Tx) and Receiver (Rx) modules have been developed for Next Generation Ground Vehicle Applications. These fiber-optic multi-channel modules take advantage of the high speeds (10 Gb/Sec/Channel) and have the ability to connect multiple sensors and systems using a rugged fiber-optic cable capable of working with very high data rates for real time information. In this paper we present design, development and application of these high Speed modules for Tethered Robotic Applications. We will present design, development and performance results for 12 channels - Tx and Rx fiber-optic module capable of providing 120 Gb/Module operations for Army's Manned and Unmanned Vehicle Applications. This technology enables the application of very high data rates and multiple channels of real time, high-resolution visible and thermal IR streaming video that enhances the ability for real time information without any bandwidth limitations.
