Abstract
This report covers the activities of a feasibility study of fiber optics technology for use in mines. The objective of the study was to evaluate, both technically and cost-wise, the possible use of fiber optic technology for underground mine communication and monitoring systems. The first phase of the study was devoted to the collection of information on the present underground mine communication systems and monitoring techniques and the status of applicable fiber optic technology. In the second phase, a communication and monitoring system for a hypothetical underground coal mine was designed and the costs were estimated. The significant findings and conclusions are presented.
