Abstract


Integrated ship communication systems require reliable and safe communication media that is suitable for fiber optic cables. This paper investigates such systems. The focus of this paper is on the research into the influences of different Doppler spectrum types to measure bit error rate in communications based on fiber optics. The results show that the highest BER is obtained for Asymmetrical Jakes and the lowest for the Jakes spectrum type. Although we are interested in communications aboard ships, the methodology can be applied to any fiber optic communication system.
