'Cable Dawgs' provide Kadena airfield with fiber optics

"Cable Dawgs" from the 18th Communications Squadron use a small excavator and shovels to fill the hole made by a trencher during fiber optic cable installation to the airfield on Kadena Air Base, Japan, April 14, 2014. Installing more than 28,000 feet of direct fiber cables underground into the airfield's localizers, glide scopes and its VORTAC, the fiber optics will replace the 20-to 30-year-old copper circuits the airfield is currently utilizing and upgrade its infrastructure to allow the airfield to receive remote maintenance and system updates from the regional maintenance center at Yokota Air Base, Japan.
