A two component vector generalization of the Schäfer-Wayne short pulse equation which describes propagation of ultra-short pulses in optical fibers with Kerr nonlinearity beyond the slowly varying envelope approximation and takes into account the effects of anisotropy and polarization is presented. As a special case, the integrable two-component short pulse equations are constructed which represent the counterpart of the Manakov system in the case of ultra-short pulses.
