We propose to continue our Phase I 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 develop new system- and network-level modeling and simulation capabilities required for aerospace platform-based WDM network design, as well as design and analyze candidate network architectures that address the requirements for WDM networks in aerospace platforms.
