Research Institution

We investigate methods of routing optical signals for flight control from board-to-board and board-to-box for avionic systems. We are developing a method for organizing optical signals on robust substrates that simplifies the optical cabling between the board and box. We plan to investigate the used of miniature, ruggedized optical components that allow optical coupling between boards with high degree of tolerance for mis-alignment. BENEFIT: Commercial and business jet flight control and reusable launch vehicles. Nonaerospace applications include automotive drive by light, industrial automation, dense computing, and all optical computing.
