Splicer, Fusion, Fiber Optic, Aerospace

WIP
AS6479A
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines fiber optic fusion splicers acceptable for the installation and repair of fiber optic interconnects in aerospace applications. Two different application environments are defined, depending on whether there is risk of flammable vapor or hazardous atmosphere being present. Equipment suited to flammable or hazardous environments may be over specified for factory, depot, or other relatively safe environments. To address these different application environments, two types of fusion splicer will be specified in applicable detail specifications: Type I. For hazardous environments specifically including potentially flammable or explosive atmospheres. Type II. For environments in which it is established that there is no risk of flammable or explosive vapors being present.

Characterization and Requirements for New Aerospace Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies - Jumpers, End Face Geometry, Link Loss Measurement, and Inspection

2019-03-28
WIP
AS5675A
To create a standard that instructs both supplier and user in the testing and characterization of initial build fiber optic cable assemblies for avionics/aerospace applications. This can be in the plant or in the avionics “box.” It includes specification of jumpers (aerospace measurement quality jumpers), end faces, link loss requirements and inspection.

Fiber Optic Sensor Specification Guidelines for Aerospace Applications

2018-12-17
CURRENT
ARP6366
ARP6366 defines a comprehensive and widely-accepted set of specification guidelines to be considered by those seeking to use or design fiber optic sensors for aerospace applications. Some of the most common applications for fiber optic sensing within aerospace include inertial guidance and navigation (gyros) and structural monitoring (temperature, strain, and vibration sensing). Common sensor infrastructure elements include: transmitting and receiving opto-electronics (e.g., sources and receivers); multiplexing and demultiplexing optics; optical cabling; and signal processing (both hardware and firmware/software).

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.
