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.

WIP
ARP7354
This document is intended to provide reliability assurance recommended practices for the deployment of individual photonic devices and PIC-based devices into aerospace platforms, focusing on reliability requirements to reach Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 7, 8 and 9. It will cover reliability assurance tests for single element and PIC chips, packaged single element and PIC chips and some single element and PIC based higher functionality modules, such as fiber-optic transmitters and receivers, free space optical transmitters and receivers, illuminators and sources for optical sensors. The document will provide the reasons and methods for aerospace reliability assurance of PIC chips, PIC based packages and PIC based devices. It will be as inclusive as possible, including PIC chips fabricated in the main material systems: semiconductors (Group IV, III-V, II-VI), electro-optic crystals (lithium niobate) and polymers.

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.

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.
