Paper Abstract

McDonnell Douglas has developed, installed, and tested a number of fiber optic systems on various commercial and military aircraft. From our experience installing and maintaining many different types of fiber optic flight test systems, it has become evident to us that the problems associated with installation and maintenance of fiber optic systems is perhaps the greatest impediment remaining to their incorporation on aircraft. This paper discusses the problems and issues associated with installing and maintaining fly-by-light systems on transport aircraft as well as some approaches and concepts being developed at McDonnell Douglas Aerospace--Transport Aircraft to alleviate these problems.
