Tactical Fiber Optic Cable


Military Tactical Fiber Optic Cables are rated and ideal for outdoor applications and where extreme environmental conditions are present. They have high flexibility and high crush resistance. Designed to be deployed and retrieved in the field, Military tactical fiber cables are highly well protected to damage caused by repeated impacts crushing forces, abrasion and extreme temperatures. They are made up to 4fibers inside Thermoplastic 900micro Tight buffer Tubes and wrapped with Aramid Yarn. Outer jacket is HFFR – Polyurethane outer jacket. They provide re-deployable audio/video communications and other events in harsh environments. Rugged construction provides superior level of crush resistance. UV Resistant Jacket is ideal for outdoor applications. It has been preferred by military due to its Fast and Robust Field Termination feature. High tensile load capability for excellent termination strength.
