Characterization and Requirements for New Aerospace Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies - Jumpers, End Face Geometry, Link Loss Measurement, and Inspection
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.
Rationale: Aerospace end users have identified a need for beginning of life, fiber optic jumper, end face inspection and link loss measurement criteria for aerospace fiber optic cable harness assemblies.
