FIBER OPTIC DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR AEROSPACE

2018-10-18
WIP
AIR8448
This document provides guidance on key areas of system design to achieve high performance and high reliability for mission critical aerospace systems and platforms. The fundamental element of a reliable, functional aerospace fiber optic application is the system design. It is the system designers’ task to define the methods, components, installation and processes supporting the transmission of the optical signal through the platform, while providing a physical layer with the necessary performance, reliability, and readiness for the application.

CURRENT
ARP6318
This document is intended for discrete and integrated digital, wavelength division multiplexing (WDM), and analog/radio frequency (RF) photonic components developed for eventual transition to aerospace platforms. The document provides the reasons for verification of photonic device life test and packaging durability. The document focuses on pre-qualification activity at the optical component level to achieve TRL 6. The recommended tests in this document are intended to excite typical failure mechanisms encountered with photonic devices in an aerospace operating environment, and to build confidence that a technology is qualifiable during a program’s engineering and manufacturing development phase. This recommended practice is targeting components to support electrical-to-optical, optical-to-electrical, or optical-to-optical functionality. Passive optical waveguide, fiber optic cable, and connector components that are integral to a photonic package are included.
