Military Fiber Optics

Timbercon fiber optic products are used in a variety of military applications requiring rigorous testing and harsh environment certification to ensure reliability and performance in the field.

The U.S. military uses fiber optic technology for a wide variety of air, sea, ground, and space applications.  Timbercon’s fiber optic technology has already been implemented in the FiberSTAR project for Lockheed Martin’s LM-STAR avionics test equipment module. The LM-STAR is used in the ground support system for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).

Timbercon utilizes high-reliability fiber optic connectors in its military fiber optics to produce precision alignment of optical fibers. Connectors with polarization keys and keyways are manufactured to exacting tolerances to reduce radial misalignment and insertion loss. Timbercon military specific MIL-DTL-38999 connectors also incorporate a bottoming surface to ensure reliable shell-to-shell connection.

Military fiber optic applications are highly specialized, often with very specific project and scope requirements. One of Timbercon’s specialties is the development and manufacturing of application-specific products for harsh environments. Timbercon has the resources, expertise, and experience to design, develop, manufacture, install, and maintain the ideal fiber optic product for your application.

Timbercon offers quick project turnaround times on virtually any military product. By establishing partnerships with key military component manufacturers, we have drastically reduced lead times, allowing expedited sourcing, manufacturing, and delivery of your product.
