Splices, Fiber Optics, for Aerospace Inter-Connection Systems

2000-06-01
HISTORICAL
MA5405
This specification covers design and performance requirements of fiber optic splices for optical distribution systems in aerospace vehicles and provide a means of procurement of such devices. Fiber optic cable design characteristics are uniquely related to various aerospace vehicle applications. As a result, the splice is constructed for specific cable types. Evaluation of the splice performance shall be with the cable type as defined in the splice detail specification (see Section 3). Typically, fiber optic splices have unique assembly instructions. Splices that are qualified to the same detail specification must be assembled using the same procedure and tools. All assembly instructions shall be presented and documented in accordance with this specification.

FIBER OPTIC DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR AEROSPACE

2018-10-18
WIP
AIR8448
This document provides guidance on key areas of system design to achieve high performance and high reliability for mission critical aerospace systems and platforms. The fundamental element of a reliable, functional aerospace fiber optic application is the system design. It is the system designers’ task to define the methods, components, installation and processes supporting the transmission of the optical signal through the platform, while providing a physical layer with the necessary performance, reliability, and readiness for the application.

Guidelines for Design of Digital Fiber Optic Link Loss Budget Methodology

2010-12-14
CURRENT
AIR6113
This document draws from, summarizes, and explains existing broadly accepted engineering best practices. This document defines the process and procedure for application of various best practice methods. This document is specifically intended as a standard for the engineering practice of development and execution of a link loss power budget for a general aerospace system related digital fiber optic link. It is not intended to specify the values associated with specific categories or implementations of digital fiber optic links. This document is intended to address both existing digital fiber optic link technology and accommodate new and emerging technologies. The proper application of various calculation methods is provided to determine link loss power budget(s), that depend on differing requirements on aerospace programs.

General Requirements for WDM Backbone Networks

2009-12-29
CURRENT
AIR6005
This document (AIR6005) provides the framework for the specifications of a WDM OBN within the SAE AS5659 WDM LAN Specification document family, in particular, the Transparent Optical Backbone Network Specification. This framework includes potential requirements, technical background, investigation and context to support the writing of SAE’s WDM LAN specifications documents. The SAE’s AS6005 WDM OBN document describes a transparent optical network which contains optical components and optical interfaces to perform optical transport, optical add/drop, optical amplification, optical routing, and optical switching functions. The conforming optical signal interfaces for the data plane of the WDM OBN are defined. The conforming signal interfaces for the control and management planes of this network are also defined. The control and management plane signals may be either electrical or optical.

A Guideline for Application of High-Density Fiber Optic Interconnects to Aerospace Platforms

2002-06-14
CURRENT
AIR5271
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR5271) covers the basic attributes of a second-generation robust, reliable high-density fiber optic interconnect system for aerospace applications. The intent is to take advantage of recent commercial developments in materials, components and manufacturing methods to develop rugged high-density fiber optic interconnects optimized for aerospace and automotive applications, which can accommodate a variety of optical fiber waveguide types. These waveguide types include single mode and multi-mode glass/glass fibers and waveguides, plastic clad silica fibers and waveguides, and all polymer fibers and waveguides. This second generation interconnect system should represent a dramatic improvement over first generation. The cable should be extremely robust eliminating any concerns over cable damage or fiber breakage in an aerospace environment.
