Research Institution
Not Available TACAN will develop a new optical cable plant for avionics applications and identify cables and harnesses, connectors, splices, break-out boxes, backplane interfaces, and fiberoptic couplers for this avionics application. The scope of this work includes all manner of waveguides including single mode and multimode glass fibers and waveguides, plastic clad silica fibers and waveguides, and all plastic fibers and waveguides. Test and maintenance concepts are developed, and manufacturing, installation, and repair tools, processes, and training programs are also identified. The analysis of these definitions will lead to a comprehensive and optimized design for an optical cable plant which will provide an advanced high-density interconnect system based on emerging technology concepts. This optimized cable plant, when coupled with photonic transceiver modules already available at TACAN, forms an integrated information distribution system capable of transferring all information on military and civilian aircraft with dramatic improvements in affordability, reliability, fault tolerance, EMI/EMP immunity, and safety throughout the lifetime of the product. Because of its light weight and high speed, this cable plant will improve aircraft performance and fuel economy while reducing aircraft certification costs.
