Abstract
LIT proposes a modular Fiber Optic Universal Cable Adapter. Fiber Optic (FO) technology provides high-speed communication bandwidth (into gigabits per second) with advantages in weight and security. FO is intrinsically secure over the Electro-Magnetic spectrum. FO is suitable for cabling applications over short distances (1 meter) to long distances (10 kilometers). FO cable has weight advantages because fiber is inherently lighter than wire and because shielding and differential pairs are not required for secure high-speed data transmission. Because of these bandwidth, EMI, distance, and security features, no wire based serial data system can compare to Fiber Optic. The UCA must be configurable to allow for any combination of signals or signal types. The U. S. Military uses standard communication interfaces, but also depends heavily on custom interfaces. The UCA needs a method of interfacing numerous signal types (such as analog, digital, serial communications, and power) without requiring a complete system redesign each time a different signal type is encountered. The modular approach provides the apparatus to conveniently incorporate any signal or interface into the UCA. The LIT solution incorporates Built-In-Test, health monitoring, self-healing, redundant connectivity, Forward Error Correction, Anti-Tamper and encryption technology for system and data protection.
