FiberPlex Squashes Compromising Emanations Onboard USS Nimitz

Network security has been battened down on the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier (CVN 68), thanks in part to new fiber optic communications equipment by FiberPlex Technologies.

Using TEMPEST tested and approved FiberPlex EIA-530 transceivers into optical cable, the carrier’s communications link is now isolated from radiated data and noise occurring inside of the ship. The use of fiber and FiberPlex’s fiber optic technology will help prevent the possibility of classified or secure information from being transmitted off of the ship.
