Using spectral analysis, we present the salient features of the radiating behavior of optical solitons in dispersion-managed fiber systems. Depending on the map strength of the system, we find a rich variety of dynamic states that includes weak, moderate, and strong radiation states. We establish the existence of a critical map strength at which a Gaussian-shaped light pulse with a large initial dressing undergoes highly stable nonradiative propagation over transoceanic distances.
