Defense Industry

Fiber optic technology plays a significant role in the Defense Industry due to its high bandwidth and wide range of applications. In addition to the primary use of data – real-time voice and video transmission – optical cables can also be used for extended purposes such as a combination of data and power (in a hybrid configuration) transmission or combined with sensors.

Optical Fiber in Defense

The application of optical fiber in defense encompasses all army branches, such as marine, navy, and airforce, and fiber-optic communication is central to modern information networks due to its resistance to electromagnetic interference. Furthermore, the durability of our FIMT, such as our Universal Cable, for example, makes our products perfect for the harsh and demanding environment of the military.  

We offer durable, lightweight, and secure solutions that strengthen defense capabilities, always with a custom approach to find the best solution for each unique challenge. 

Benefits of Fiber Optics Monitoring in Defense Industry

Total immunity to EMI/RFI

Fiber optic cables are unaffected by electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI). 

Long Lifetime

Our fiber optic products are built to perform in the long term in various challenging environments and industries.

For Harsh Environments

Fiber optic technology is resilient to damage in extremely high pressure/high temperature (HPHT) environments.

High Accuracy

Optical sensing is sensitive enough to detect any minor changes in the environment and reliably alert the data center in real-time. 

Data Connectivity

Compared to copper-based wires, optical fiber is lighter, our FIMT (Fiber in Metal Tubes) are more resilient, and they are more secure. Optical fiber is not affected by EMI or RFI; it’s tap-proof and reduces the need for encryption. 

Data connectivity can be provided for equipment such as Missile Systems, Radar System, Satcom Solutions, UAV Ground Control, Shelter to Shelter Communication, Ship to Shore Communications and Remote/Field Communication Centers.

The most important factors for complete data connectivity systems

We serve the Defense Industry’s high demand for standardized, rugged connectors and accessories.

Military Standards

We support the Defense Industry with custom products and applications that conform to the elite standards of the military.


We supply custom accessories for deployment, connectivity, cable management, repair, and restoration.

Impact Resistance

Our products are built with extremely high resilience to crush and impact for reliable use in the field.

UV Light Resistant

Fiber optic products that resist UV light are a significant advantage for data connectivity systems in the Defense Industry.

Defense Systems

1. Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)

The military application of Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) provides valuable insight into military equipment and damage. Military fiber optics also includes monitoring of the seabed for enemy ships and submarines. 

Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) uses optical fiber to detect frequency strain signals over large distances to measure leaks and faults. We produce FIMT (Fiber in Metal Tubes), which offers protection in harsh environments, allowing the Defense Industry the opportunity to employ DAS in challenging environments. 

2. Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems (PIDS)

Cables designed for Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) can also be used as Perimeter Intruder Detection Systems (PIDS), in which we specialize in custom fiber optic solutions. The technology provides real-time and complete perimeter security for structures of any perimeter length. 

We can supply your fiber optic monitoring system, complete with innovative technology and resilient materials that detect intrusions. In addition, we select the best-in-class equipment with a focus on optimal cost efficiency and long-term reductions in maintenance costs. 

Our systems can integrate with existing security systems to install fence, wall, or ground monitoring (for various terrains). 

3. Additional Contributions to Defense

Also among our offerings in the Defense Industry are Tactical Field Cable Systems, Hybrid Cable Systems, Cabinet Monitoring, Repair Service and User Training, System Components, and Accessories. 

Once again, we ensure that our fiber optic solutions align with the needs of the industry: durable, reliable, lightweight, and versatile. So get in touch and speak to one of our experts today – we’ll respond with a custom solution that’s perfect for your project.
