Paper Abstract

Aircraft and tactical communications systems have ever-increasing needs to distribute and switch voice, data and video services. These networks must be very flexible in protocols and format for the information and need to be modular to accommodate reconfiguration and changes in services. A broadband 50 MHz - 2.5 GHz analog, fiber optic network is an excellent solution for the system backbone. This paper describes a robust 50 MHz - 2.5 GHz analog backbone having almost 100 dB/Hz2/3 suitable for both military airborne and tactical applications. The network operates in a similar manner to video cable distribution systems, but has full two-way capabilities for channelized voice, data and video.
