0831- 8245
Ground Tactical Military/Commercial –
Inspection, Cleaning, and Test Platform Kit
NSN: 5180-01-574-5887
KITCO Fiber Optics designed the 0831-8245 Inspection, Cleaning, and Test Platform Kit
with the Warfighter in mind. This unique, comprehensive Test Platform is custom made
for the Ground Tactical Warfighter to enable them to discover where the cable reel or
fiber run is broken, determine the length of the fiber reel or commercial network links,
and evaluate the dB loss and quality of the polish of each termini or connector’s endface.
The 0831-8245 includes the most powerful OTDR (Optical Time Domain
Reflectometer) on the market. This sophisticated piece of equipment enables
the Warfighter to discover where a fiber reel or commercial link is broken or
has an excessive bend. The OTDR will also tell the Warfighter how much
fiber is on a reel. Fiber losses for mated pairs of connectors will also be
demonstrated by unique traces displayed on the OTDR’s monitor.
u
u
The 0831-8245 also contains the JDSU OLS-5 LED Light Source for
multimode applications that launches at 850 and 1300 nanometer
wavelengths and the JDSU OLS-6 LASER Light Source for singlemode
applications that launches at 1310 and 1550 nanometer wavelengths.
– These Light Sources work in conjunction with the OTDR which contains
a module that converts the OTDR to a Power Meter and utilizes its
monitor as the power meter’s screen. The Power Meter reads all of
the wavelengths: 850, 1300, 1310, and 1550.
– An additional module converts the OTDR’s monitor into a microscope
display that accepts a USB plug attached to a probe that accommodates
probe tips for every TFOCA connector and commercial connector
the Warfighter may encounter. All fiber is not created equal.
– The kit also includes a new handheld video display that provides
portability of the video inspection without utilizing the OTDR.
A separate probe and tips complete this package.
– All cleaning swabs that allow the Warfighter to clean the TFOCA,
Multiple Termini Connector without disassembling are included
as well as the non-hazmat fiber optic cleaning fluid.
– All appropriate High Quality Launch Cables (HQLCs) used to eliminate
the OTDR “dead zones”, and all High Quality Reference Cables (HQRCs)
used to interface with a Light Source and Power Meter are included in
this kit for both multimode and singlemode applications.
There is no more comprehensive kit currently on the market
that allows the Warfighter
to Inspect, Clean, and Test
all available Ground Tactical
and “military/commercial”
fiber optic systems anywhere,
anyplace!
Note:
Replacement probe tips and coupling adapters can be found on pages 40-42.

The 0831-8237 Inspection, Cleaning and Test Platform Kit is used to
determine how well the endface of a fiber optic connector is polished
(often called component loss or insertion loss of a system).
u
The kit contains a JDSU HP3-60-P4 fiber inspection and test unit,
which integrates an inspection probe and video display (with the
appropriate inspection tips for all Ground Tactical Warfighter
applications) and a power meter that detects 850, 1300, 1310,
and 1550 nanometer “windows”.
u
This kit also contains a JDSU OLS-5 LED Multimode Light Source, a
JDSU OLS-6 LASER Singlemode Light Source, all High Quality Reference
Cables needed to interface between the Light Source and HP3-60 Power
Meter to proper check for link loss in accordance with MIL-STD-2042,
Modified B, Method.
u
The HQJs include all footprints for TFOCA (SG) Second Generation,
and all “military/commecial” applications, including ST, SC, and LC.
u
The 0831-8237 also contains flexible cleaning swabs, fiber optic
cleaning fluid and all appropriate singlemode quality coupling adapters
needed to interface with the probes, sources and meter to obtain
consistent and reliable link loss and component readings.
Note:
An OTDR should not be used to test the loss or the quality of mated pairs.
High Quality Reference Cables (HQRCs), Singlemode Quality Coupling
Adapters, and properly calibrated Light Sources and Power Meters
should be used. The Modified B Method of the MIL-STD-2042
is highly recommended to obtain consistent, repeatable,
and reliable testing results. Please refer to the CD-ROM
and other sections of this catalog for more clarification.
This comprehensive light
source/power meter/HQJ
kit has every adapter to test
any fiber link the Warfighter
may encounter!

Ground Tactical Quad Fusion Splicing
and Ground Tactical Military/Commercial
Fiber Optic Termination Kit
NSN 5180-01-574-5837
The Quad El Fusion splicer, and its companion products, allows the Warfighter to splice
factory manufactured “pigtails” of almost any footprint and thereby repair the system in
a matter of minutes.
This unique kit was designed especially for the United States Army
and TFOCA fiber repair, however, its capabilities have been enhanced
to support all aspects of “military/commercial” arenas.
This fusion splicer is the only machine in the world capable of fusing four 900 micron
buffered fibers (singlemode or multimode) at the same time!
u
All of the support products such as the thermal stripper, cleave tool, and protection
sleeves are included. Since TFOCA M85045-8A Fiber Optic Cable contains four 900 micron
buffered fibers this fusion splicer is perfect for this application.
u
u
The 0831-8236 also contains a pair of
250 micron holders for “military/commercial”
applications.
u
The fusion splicer will also fusion splice
one or two fibers at a time if the
application warrants.
u
The fusion splicer main body is ACU (Army
Combat Uniform) camouflage colored and
has a built-in oven to shrink the protection
sleeves. Note: The fusion splicer main body
is also available in a MCCUU (Marine Corps
Combat Utility Uniform) camouflaged color.
u
The tools provided for connectorization
include all tools and consumables necessary
to terminate the TFOCA (SG) connectors from
every manufacturer (AFSI, AOS, Delphi,
Glenair, QPC, and STRAN Technologies)
and all “military/commercial” connectors as
well. These “military/commercial” connectors
include 3M™ Hot Melts, Corning Unicam®
(No Epoxy, No Polish) connectors, Tyco
Electronics’ Epoxy-Style, and Lucent
Epoxy-Style connectors.
u
The kit also includes the dual purpose oven
that is required to terminate the 3M Hot Melt
connectors and to cure the epoxy-style
connectors.
u
A waterproof, military grade case with a
pressure release valve safely protects each
tool in the harshest environments.
L e t u s s h o w y o u h o w w e c a n h e l p:
The 0831-8236 is the only kit
on the market that will:
u Terminate EVERY TFOCA (SG)
connector the Ground Tactical
Warfighter may encounter
u Terminate all “military/
commercial” ST, SC, and
LC connectors
u Function as a full blown
fusion splice kit!
By combining these two
technologies the Warfigher
is able to instantly field repair
reelsTactical Fiber Optic Cable
reels or any commercial fiber
link that may need repair.

The #0831-1116 Quad EL Fusion Splice Kit is the ultimate kit to instantly and proficiently repair broken reels of TFOCA (SG) and/or “Military/Commercial” runs of fiber.
u
Unique fiber holders allow the Ground Tactical Warfighter to thermally strip
four fibers, cleave four fibers, fuse four fibers, and protect four fibers at the
same time. These features can easily save 75% in re-work time.
u
An “arc check” is not necessary for each environmental change;
the only necessary adjustment is an altitude re-set if significant
changes in elevation are encountered.
u
This splicer will successfully splice either multimode or singlemode fiber,
and will even splice the new hybrid fiber which contains two multimode
and two singlemode fibers in the same jacket!
u
The Quad EL will easily splice a variety or combination of fibers:
singlemode or multimode with minimal loss (approximately .03 dB),
as well as either dual or quad 900 micron, breakout style, buffered fibers.
u
An additional set of quad holders is included to accommodate
250 micron acrylate coated, distribution style cable.
u
All tools and equipment are protected by a fully functioning military grade
case. The top is removable to allow the Warfighter to safely place their
tools in a clean environment, avoiding contamination from the ground,
dirt or sand where they may be working.
u
The precision cleave tool and the fusion splicer do not need to be
removed from the case and can easily be used within the case to
avoid contamination.
u
One of the most remarkable features of this amazing machine is that
training instructions have been downloaded (video and audio) directly
onto the machine itself. All the Ground Tactical Warfighter need do is
push a few buttons and an instant video shows how to use the fusion
splicer plays on the splicer and explains in
detail how to splice and protect a reel of
TFOCA (SG) fiber!

Ground Tactical Military/Commercial
Fiber Optic Termination Kit
NSN 5180-01-574-5828
KITCO understands that the Ground Tactical Warfighter is challenged every day to maintain
COTS (Commercial Off the Shelf ) products. We have discovered that the Ground Tactical arena
includes many other connectors besides the TFOCA (Tactical Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies). While our legacy kits support many ST, SC, and LC connectors they do not support
3M™ Hot Melt connectors (which require a special oven and cure adapters) or the Corning
Unicam®, no epoxy, no polish (NENP) connector which is prolific in the Warfighter’s arena.
We were asked by the Army and the Marines to develop a “Military/Commercial Kit” –
and the result is our 0831-8235 Universal Termination Kit.
KITCO diligently researched the Ground Tactical Warfighter
arena to make sure exactly which connectors the
Warfighter is required to inspect, clean, test, and repair.
u
This connectorization kit is a universal kit that will terminate almost any fiber
optic connector that the Ground Tactical Warfighter may encounter.
u
Not only will this kit support TFOCA (SG) connectors made by AFSI, AOS,
Delphi, Glenair, QPC, and Stran Technologies, but it will also support almost
every “military/commercial” connector (ST, SC, and LC) currently available.
u
All the proper crimp tools and dies are contained in this tool kit as well as
the polishing films and other consumables.
u
This is the only kit of its kind that will support both multimode and
singlemode TFOCA (SG) and multimode and singlemode ST, SC,
and even LC “military/commercial” connectors.
u
Special polishing fixtures, crimp dies, and polishing pads are placed
in the kits to allow this process to occur.
u
KITCO’s dual purpose oven with two heating blocks is also included to
accommodate both the pre-loaded adhesive 3M™ Hot Melt connectors
and the epoxy-style connectors from Tyco Electronics and Lucent.
u
A fast cure, chemically reactive two-part adhesive and primer is also included
that requires no oven to allow for emergency repairs without AC power.
u
To complete the package, Corning’s Unicam® (NENP or No Epoxy—No Polish)
support tools are included in the 0831-8235. This includes the precision
cleaver and the activation tool with the built-in visual fault locator which will
immediately tell if the connector was successfully installed on the end of
the fiber.
L e t u s s h o w y o u h o w w e c a n h e l p:
After many visits, briefings,
training convenings and interviews all over the world we
are confident that the
0831-8235 will support every
fiber optic connector the
Warfighter will encounter
for many years to come!

NSN : 5180-01-516-7227
This termination kit was originally designed with input from the U.S. Marine Corps in 1995 to support the connectorization process for the Dual Biconic Hermaphroditic Connector [now commonly
known as TFOCA First Generation (FG)]. The original part
number was 0801-8500 but was recently changed as the kit
has been upgraded to accommodate TFOCA Second
Generation (SG) products.
This kit allows the Warfighter to replace either a TFOCA (FG) or the new TFOCA (SG)
Plugs and/or receptacles.
u
u
The 0801-8510 kit is uniquely designed to equip the Warfighter with all the proper
tools and consumables to strictly follow the MIL-STD-2042(B) polishing procedure
for the 2.5mm ferruled TFOCA termini. The Defense Logistics Agency analyzed and
approved the procedure to assure high quality endfaces, compatibility, and interoper
ability even in harsh field environments.
The TFOCA (FG) Biconic termini’s quality is assured by including a new high
precision, digital polishing length gauge and an improved polishing fixture.
u
All products placed in this kit, such as epoxy, heat curing oven, microscope,
scissors etc. are products that are found on the DOD’s Recommended
Parts List (RPL) or the Qualified Parts List (QPL).

US Marine Corps, TFOCA Fusion Splice Kit
NSN: 6080-01-520-8198
The 0731-1115 Fusion Splice Kit is designed especially for Tactical Fiber Optic Cable splicing.
The small, portable S121M-CUST2 Fusion Splicer was custom designed by the
Marines in order to allow the Warfighter to splice two 900 micron buffered fibers
at the same time.
u
The fiber stripping, cleaving, and glass protection is also a dual process. The Warfighter
can actually strip two fibers, cleave two fibers and splice two fibers simultaneously.
This saves the Warfighter literally hours in maintenance costs and re-works.
u
The kit’s unique case is actually a tool that assists the Warfighter in the fusion process
by aligning the fiber and securing it in place. The Warfighter need not remove the
cleaver or the splicer itself from the case unless necessary.
u
This kit should be used in conjunction with the KITCO Fiber Optics 0731-1170,

This state-of-the-art T-BERD 6000 Optical Time Domain
Reflectometer (OTDR) is used to determine where the
“Military/Commercial” fiber runs or TFOCA reels are
broken or exhibit excessive bends.
Even though “traces” may be shown on the OTDR screen depicting connector endface losses,
these are inferred losses based on the timed backscattering of the light as it is reflected
back to the source. OTDRs are highly accurate for finding fiber breaks and bends but a Light
Source/Power Meter and High Quality Reference Cables (HQRCs) should be used for checking the endface quality of mated pairs. High Quality Launch
Cables (HQLCs) should be used to interface in front of this OTDR to eliminate the event and attenuation “dead zones” for the most accurate readings.

HQJ’s are reference cables or test jumpers that are
manufactured and tested to meet the highest levels
of optical performance while allowing repeatability
in testing optical fiber cables.
An HQJ is designed to identify a sub-standard fiber optic component, fiber optic link or TFOCA
cable reel. HQJ’s can be interfaced with an Optical Light Source (OLS), an Optical Power Meter
(OPM), and an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR). HQJ’s come in two categories:
High Quality Launch Cables (HQLC) and High Quality Reference Cables (HQRC).
HQLCs are launch cables that eliminate OTDR (Optical Time
Domain Reflectometer) “dead zones”resulting from the optical
light pulse launched into the fiber.
u
After extensive research KITCO has determined that the optimum “correct”
lengths for multimode HQLCs is 15 meters and 18 meters for singlemode.
u
If these lengths are utilized, no matter what OTDR is used, the “dead zone”
will be accounted for and the machine’s accuracy will be maximized.
u
OTDRs operate on the premise of timing the back-scattering of the light as it
is reflected back to the source and timed in nanoseconds to locate breaks or
excessive bends in the fiber.
u
OTDRs should not be relied upon to measure the dB loss of mated pair
connectors.
u
Using one HQLC is an acceptable method for finding a break or excessive
bend. If two HQLCs are used (with one attached at both ends) a more explicit
“picture” of the “boxed-in” fiber run or cable reel can be obtained.
HQLCs are used to accurately determine link or component loss
and to evaluate the quality of a connector’s endface polish.
u
If an OTDR is used to determine the quality or loss of a mated paired only an
inferred loss based on “back-scatter” will be obtained.
For a complete listing of the various HQJ configurations
see the HQJ matrix chart on the following page.

Fiber Optic Cleaning Fluid
The 0700-5175 is a uniquely formulated fiber preparation and cleaning fluid
that is non-pressurized and categorized as a non-hazmat chemical, which
eliminates restrictions on air transport and shipping. The chemical is perfect
for cleaning the glass during inspection, connectorization or fusion splicing
procedures and leaves absolutely no residue or films like traditional alcohol
based products.
The formulation cleans at the microscopic particle level and leaves no oils, water spots or static bonds. Since
the product is highly stable it has an extremely long shelf life. A special dispenser allows the warfighter to dispense this product either with an attachable tube or by a pumping action which produces a small pool of fluid
which can be absorbed by the 0700-5165 Fiber Optic Cleaning Wipes.
0700-5165
Fiber Optic Cleaning Wipes
The 0700-5165 Fiber Wipes are specifically designed to clean the optical

FiberSure Stripper
NSN 5110-01-559-9272
This five-in-one tool will strip two ranges (2.8 to 3.0 mm outside jacket,
2.0 to 3.4 mm outside jacket) of outside fiber jacket sizes for “military/commercial” grade fibers. The 2.0 to 3.0 is for loose tube (LT) outside jacketed fiber. The smaller
hole sizes will strip the 900 micron buffer only (leaving the acrylate coating), and the smallest micron hole size will strip
the 900 micron buffer and the 250 micron acrylate coating at the same time. This truly versatile tool consolidates many
tools into one and comes in handy as a backup for the Quad EL thermal stripper.
0700-3055
TFOCA Jacket Strip Tool
NSN 5110-01-564-3559
The 0700-3055 Jacket Strip Tool was designed from input by the Warfighters to enable them to
easily enter and remove the outer jacket of M85045-8A TFOCA ruggedized cable. Two opposing razor-sharp
blades sink just deep enough to split the tough jacket without injuring the buffer, tangling the Kevlar, or harming the glass (fiber.)

NSN 3465-01-562-0553
The 0705-7080 Visual Fault Locator (VFL) is a handy Class IIIa LASER that operates at
the 650nm Wavelength with <5mw output. This VFL will check both singlemode and
multimode fiber for excessive bends or breaks, and the bright red light can actually
be seen through the cable jacket. A slide button enables the Warfighter to exhibit either a steady or
pulsating light for easy detection. This product has a range of approximately 7 kilometers over singlemode fiber and
5 kilometers over multimode fiber. The 0705-7080 can be used during troubleshooting to identify breaks and also to
isolate broken connectors at the end of a fiber cable. By quickly identifying which connector end is broken the
Warfighter immediately knows which end to repair, saving time and money by fixing the damaged end the first time!

Quad EL 900 Micron Fiber Holders
These highly unique and precision machined holders
are the functional key to success for the Quad EL
Fusion Splice Kit. In order for the fusion splice to be successfully
achieved, a 2000 degree Celsius arc must cross the electrodes to melt
the fibers. All eight fiber endfaces must be precisely aligned so that
they touch; for this to occur four perfectly shaped grooves must be
machined and set in parallel. A modified screw is utilized to secure the four fibers in place and prevent them from “slipping”
when inserted in the splicer. The 0831-9106 holders will accept any combination of 900 micron buffered fiber and the
0831-9105 holders will accept any combination of 250 micron “military/commercial” acrylate coated fiber.

ST, SC, and LC-Style connectors are usually referred to as No Epoxy, No Polish (NENP) products.
These connectors are set with epoxy and “factory polished” which results in extremely low dB loss. An index matching material
is also injected into the Pretium™ connectors so when the Warfighter cleaves and inserts the 90 degree angled fiber into the
connector (utilizing the Pretium™ installation tool) the connection is automatically completed. The Pretium™ installation tool
has a built-in Visual Fault Locator that instantly verifies a successful connector installation. The Warfighter no longer has to wait
for an oven to heat up or bother with mixing messy epoxy. An average connector can be completed from start to finish in well
under five minutes!

and do not disperse with distance).
when compared to a ‘PC’ or physical contact
connector as shown in Figure 2.
Since the fiber endfaces do not come into actual physical contact with one another, they
can be mated and de-mated several thousand times without any degradation. If any contaminants,
including sand, mud, water, oil, gasoline, or any foreign debris manages to get between the lenses,
it can be flushed away with a stream of water or a quick swipe with a cleaning swab. Expanded beam
connectors are also less sensitive to vibration and
shock and are available in either multimode (both
50/125 & 62.5/125) or singlemode. KITCO offers
all “footprints” for multimode and singlemode
expanded beam HQRCs and HQLCs
Expanded beam connectors are not new but have been used for many years in Europe and many other
NATO countries with great success. The United States Marine Corps has many communication platforms
that have already instigated the use of both multimode and singlemode systems that require expanded
beam fiber reels and the Army will likely adopt this technology soon. KITCO has been instrumental in
testing systems and fiber reels at Camp Lejuene, NC and
documenting the results to prove that expanded beam is
a viable product for use by our troops in actual battlefield
conditions. KITCO has also successfully manufactured true
HQJs for testing all three types of fiber the Warfighter will
encounter— singlemode, 50/125 multimode, and 62.5/125
multimode. These are the High Quality Launch Cables (HQLCs) used with an OTDR to pinpoint a break in
the fiber, and the High Quality Reference Cables (HQRCs) used with a Light Source and Power Meter to test
the quality of the endface or the mated pair loss of recently
polished connectors. All major TFOCA connector manufacturers
are working to design their own version of expanded beam
connectors, which may one day be used in place of TFOCA
(SG) connectors. The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) is highly
recommending fusion splicing and protection of splices in the
field. The following KITCO products can be used to accomplish
fusion splicing of expanded beam (EB) fiber in the field.

The JPS-400 Splice Protection Sleeve was designed by KITCO and the U.S. Marine Corps to
allow the Warfighter to properly protect the M85045 Tactical Fiber Optic Cable after it has
been spliced. This extremely rugged yet completely flexible jacket protection sleeve assumes
the contour of the diameter of the fiber reel. The JPS-400 can be easily disassembled and re-used if a
mistake is made during the initial protection process or if re-work is required, making this splice protector perfect for
the battlefield environment. This product should
be used in conjunction with the 0731-1115 or the
0831-1116 Quad EL Fusion Splice Kit.

In addition to fiber optic theory and the proper termination of fiber optic
connectors our course provides in-depth instruction on inspecting,
cleaning, testing and troubleshooting fiber topologies.
Our training is conducted utilizing
the latest military approved ground
tactical and commercial fiber cabling
equipment including:
