The major market for fiber optics until now has been in the telecommunications field. However, increased competition between systems, subsystems, and component suppliers has forced down prices, lowering profits and margins. Optical equipment suppliers are looking to new markets to improve their bottom lines and capabilities. Despite this, new technology continues to be developed at a rapid rate. Fortunately, much of this technology is applicable to the defense, aerospace, and Homeland Security fields.
Much of the information on government projects is not readily available and is scattered among a wide range of sources. The Military and Aerospace Fiber Optics Monthly Newsletter will search out and report this hard to find information on a regular basis.
The MAFO newsletter will cover all applications of fiber optics, including communications, control, computer networks, lighting, sensors, radar, surveillance, security, and many more. The MAFO newsletter will be a necessary marketing tool for those already providing optical equipment and services to the defense, aerospace, and Homeland Security business, as well as those firms considering entering these fields.
