on reflection, how does copper behave in a salt air environment? is
corrosion a problem? again, another factor that might point to fiber
interconnects. i know the USN generally interconnects with fiber in their
newer ships, but what i know is mostly from the overview articles on the
Jane's and Aviation Leak web sites, not a lot of technical detail there.
