WDM LAN Network Management And Control

2014-11-07
WIP
AS5659/3
This document describes network management and control facilities for the WDM LAN, within the SAE AS5659 WDM LAN specifications document family. Unlike like point-to-point solutions, networks require a control plane to allocate the shared network resources and a management plane which provides a disciplined approach to configuring and monitoring the network. Within a Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) environment, management and control provides wavelength selection and routing for traffic that is processed. The extent of network management and control depends on the design of the network, and can range from hardwired wavelengths to dynamic wavelength allocation with damage recovery.

WDM LAN Access and Aggregation

2014-11-07
WIP
AS5659/2
This document describes the Client Adaptation Element (CAE), the set of functions that provides access and aggregation capability for the WDM LAN, within the SAE AS5659 WDM LAN specifications document family. In the WDM LAN, the CAE fits in between the Optical Backbone, which provides transmission of data over the transparent network, and the clients which the network serves. The complexity of the CAE depends on the types and number of clients.

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.

Transparent Optical Backbone Network Specification

2014-11-07
WIP
AS5659/1
This document provides a specification for the WDM Optical Backbone Network (OBN) within the SAE AS5659 WDM LAN specifications document family. The specification applies to any optical network which uses Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) in any optical media, and describes a transparent optical network that contains optical components (i.e. without Optical-to-Electrical conversion). The specification describes optical network elements (ONE) that perform optical transport, optical add/drop, optical amplification, optical routing, and optical switching functions. Performance limits are given for conforming optical signal interfaces and transfer functions for the ONEs, as well as architectures comprising combinations of them. This specification will enable network and systems engineers to design and use scalable and upgradable WDM based optical networks aboard mobile platforms.

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.

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.
