Application filed: The Fiber optic Rotary Joint (FORJ) is the optical equivalent of the electrical slip ring. It allows uninterrupted transmission of an optical signal while rotating along the fiber axis. The FORJ is widely used in missile guidance systems, robotic systems, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), oil drilling systems, sensing systems, medical devices (OCTs), broadcasting and many other field applications where a twist-free fiber cable is essential.
