Abstract
The Towed Integrated Active-Passive SONAR (TIAPS) program mandates the construction of an integrated towed array for research purposes. This towed array includes a horizontal line projector, and "active" receive module, and elements of a passive receive array. The combination of these elements in a single tow presents some difficulty with respect to transmitting high frequency electrical signals past projector elements that are driven by high voltage signals. The solution to this problem is to transmit the data from the active and passive receive arrays on optical fibres. The design of the transmitter (Fibre Optic Adapter Module, FOAM) and receiver (Fibre Optic Receive Unit, FORU) is a task in the TIAPS program. This document discusses the feasibility of upgrading the speed of the fibre connection from SONET OC-1 (51.84 Mbps) to SONET OC-3 (155.52 Mbps).
