Abstract
We propose to perform innovative research towards the development of a new WDM fiber optic network architecture standard for aerospace platforms that will not just supplement current networks, but completely replace all legacy networks to maximize the benefits of fiber optic network technology and revolutionize networking in aerospace platforms. Our approach is to combine expertise in optical network architectures with rigorous multi-level hierarchical analysis, modeling, and optimization of candidate WDM fiber optic network architectures for aerospace platforms utilizing cutting-edge and innovative modeling and simulation tools. We propose to specify candidate network architectures that address the requirements for WDM networks in aerospace platforms, analyze and simulate them, and evaluate them based on a variety of metrics. We also propose to specify new modeling and simulation capabilities that may be required for aerospace platform-based WDM network design as determined through the course of our work.
