AbstractThis paper describes the design, configuration, testing, and performance of a Fiber Optic Link used to transmit the signals from a remotely located S-band telemetry system to the main facility at the Kwajalein Missile Range (KMR). This fiber optic system demonstrates for the first time the feasibility of linking RF data from multiple antennas via a single fiber and over a nearly 100-km distance. Measured data of key link parameters such as gain, bit-error-rate, crosstalk, phase and gain stability, dynamic range, and noise figure are presented.
