A dispersion-managed optical system with stepwise periodic variation of dispersion is studied in a strong dispersion map limit in the framework of the path-averaged Gabitov–Turitsyn equation. The soliton solution is obtained by analytical and numerical iteration of the path-averaged equation. An efficient numerical algorithm for finding a DM soliton shape is developed. The envelope of soliton oscillating tails is found to decay exponentially in time, and the oscillations are described by a quadratic law.
