This letter proposes a non-metallic optical fiber cable which contains fiber ribbons inserted into slots, with a high impact resistant sheath which affords protection against shotgun pellets. The protective performance of the materials is investigated experimentally. Based on the results, non-metallic 100-fiber cable with a high impact resistant sheath was manufactured and its performance was evaluated. It is confirmed that this cable has excellent transmission, mechanical and antiballistic characteristics.
