GPON Based Real Time Synchronization and Fusion Technology
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
This effort is focused on the problem of acquiring data from disparate sensors, time synchronizing the data, fusing data from various different sources and sensors, and providing bi-directional communications with analysis devices and personnel in remote locations. 3 Phoenix has proposed a solution that would solve this specific problem, and extend to other sensor applications, by exploiting the capabilities of the Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) network technology carried within a Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON). GPON is an emerging technology that is being widely adopted by the Telecommunications and Digital Cable service providers. GPON is a passive technology which greatly reduces the power requirements while significantly enhancing system reliability. One of the promising features of GPON is that it directly incorporates a Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) capability that supports bidirectional line rates on a single fiber. The GPON standards have been developed by a large industry consortium and hardware implementations are presently being developed for wide deployment. This wide application and diverse user group requires it to carry the timing and routing information essential to build a reliable, low power, synchronous fusion engine for both analog and digital data sources.
