Fiber Optic Harsh Environment Test Methods Cross Reference Document

2015-06-12
CURRENT
AIR6282
This standard provides a cross reference detailing current test methods used in the qualification processes of fiber optic connectors, termini and cables for aerospace, telecommunications and naval applications. The cross-reference allows the end user to select the test methods most suitable for qualifying a component, or to identify alternative test methods where a specific test is not defined in a referenced document. The standard also provides information on what area each type of referenced document has been developed for.

Fiber Optic Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) Singlemode Interconnect and Component Standards Mapping for Aerospace Platform Applications – Device Level Specification

2009-04-01
CURRENT
AIR5667
The purpose of this document is to serve as a resource to aerospace designers who are planning to utilize Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) interconnects and components. Many WDM commercial systems exist and they incorporate a number of existing, commercially supported, standards that define the critical parameters to guide the development of these systems. These standards ensure interoperability between the elements within these systems. The commercial industry is motivated to utilize these standards to minimize the amount of tailored development. However, since some of the aerospace parameters are not satisfied by the commercial devices, this document will also try to extend the commercial parameters to those that are necessary for aerospace systems. The document provides cross-references to existing or emerging optical component and subsystem standards.

In-Service Fiber Optic Inspection, Evaluation and Cleaning, Best Practices, Physical Contact Termini

2018-01-04
CURRENT
ARP6283
This document provides recommended best practice methods and processes for the in-service inspection, evaluation and cleaning of all physical contact (PC) fiber optic interconnect components (termini, alignment sleeves and connectors), test equipment and test leads for maintainers qualified to the approved aerospace fiber optic training courses developed in accordance with ARP5602 or ARINC807. This document also provides a decision-making disposition flowchart to determine whether the fiber optic components are acceptable for operation. For definitions of individual component parts refer to ARP5061.

Multi-Transmitter Bidirectional Fiber-Optic Data Bus for Distributed Aircraft Control Systems

2002-04-26
HISTORICAL
AS5370
This specification applies to a communication protocol for networked control systems. The protocol provides peer-to-peer communication for networked control and is suitable for implementing both peer-to-peer and master-slave control strategies. This specification describes services for all seven protocol layers. In the layer 7 specification, it includes a description of the types of messages used by applications to exchange application and network management data.

Verification of Discrete and Packaged Photonic Device Technology Readiness

2018-08-20
CURRENT
ARP6318
This document is intended for discrete and integrated digital, wavelength division multiplexing (WDM), and analog/radio frequency (RF) photonic components developed for eventual transition to aerospace platforms. The document provides the reasons for verification of photonic device life test and packaging durability. The document focuses on pre-qualification activity at the optical component level to achieve TRL 6. The recommended tests in this document are intended to excite typical failure mechanisms encountered with photonic devices in an aerospace operating environment, and to build confidence that a technology is qualifiable during a program’s engineering and manufacturing development phase. This recommended practice is targeting components to support electrical-to-optical, optical-to-electrical, or optical-to-optical functionality. Passive optical waveguide, fiber optic cable, and connector components that are integral to a photonic package are included.
