This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) includes technical, dimensional, mechanical and operating performance requirements for aerospace fiber optic termini housed in AS6521 circular and rectangular connectors, as part of a fiber optic interconnect assembly comprising of a connector, fiber optic cable and fiber optic terminus. Technical, dimensional, mechanical, and operating performance requirements for the associated aerospace fiber optic connectors and cables are detailed in AS6521 and AS5382 respectively. For other applications, refer to the respective connector and cable standards.
The motivation for creating this document is to support the recent unprecedented growth of fiber optic technology in the aerospace industry. It addresses the current needs and the future demand for fiber optic and photonic technologies deployed on aerospace platforms. In addition to supporting current requirements, this document provides a path for future growth that is open to multiple architectures.
