When OCC opened for business in 1983, the U.S. military was our first major customer. Their need was for an extremely strong, lightweight, rugged, and survivable military fiber optic cable. In addition to durability, this military cable had to efficiently transmit previously unprecedented volumes of data in the field. OCC engineers were at the forefront of the development of the tight-buffered, tight-bound cable technology that met these criteria. The result was military fiber optic cables that were easy to deploy and performed under the harshest of conditions. The strength of our military-grade cable solutions was the foundation and inspiration for our diverse portfolio of products and solutions. Our commitment to product reliability can be seen in every industry that we serve.
Today, OCC continues to be the premier manufacturer of military-grade tactical fiber optic cable and connectivity solutions for the U.S. military. Our broad product offering for military tactical applications is built on the evolution of fundamental technologies designed to provide end users with components that are easy to install, provide a high degree of reliability, and offer outstanding performance characteristics. We are an approved manufacturer of qualified military-grade fiber optic cables, certified by the United States Defense Logistics Agency. OCC’s military fiber optic cables are paired with an efficient deployment system for easy implementation and retrieval.
OCC is recognized by defense agencies around the world for its rugged fiber optic cables serving the military ground tactical market. Now, the United States Defense Logistics Agency, a division of the Department of Defense, has certified OCC as an approved manufacturer of qualified ground tactical fiber optic cables in accordance with MIL-PRF-85045/8A. The certification is the result of an exhaustive series of optical, mechanical, and environmental tests to ensure full compliance to the demanding requirements of the United States military
