Abstract
Analysis of optical network performance provides key insights and enables comparison of technology and architecture alternatives beings considered for implementation of WDM LAN-based optical backbone networks within on-board aircraft platforms. Additional development of the models and algorithms used in commercial simulation and optimization tools is needed to characterize the complex interactions among various optical components and optical systems operating within a backbone network. The simulation and modeling tools defined in the proposed project will enable characterization of performance within a WDM LAN fiber-optic network infrastructure that is expected to be retained for the life of the aircraft. This Phase 1 proposal describes a project focused on an impartial assessment of simulation and modeling requirements and the ability of existing tools to be augmented to implement the needed simulations. Our team will recommend specific modeling tool enhancements and a strategy (including future partnering with simulation or modeling tool suppliers) for introducing the needed models and simulation capabilities whether through modifications and additions to existing products, or if needed, as part of new modeling tools.
