 SCP Fiber Optics  FOFT is a high-performance Fiber Optic Feed Thru
As the demand for bandwidth increases 40% each year, the submarine fleet relies on fiber optic cables over coax cables to meet the challenge.   Its unique process produces a robust hermetic seal between an optical fiber and a metal super alloy with a proprietary seal glass. A very durable compression seal results, which can withstand extreme temperature and pressure conditions. The combination of materials used is also highly resistant to corrosion and chemical attack. Submarine applications include pressure hull penetrators, compartment bulkhead connectors and dry mate systems
