Paper Abstract

Because of the advantages of high bandwidth and EMI immunity, optical communication systems and sensors continue to be the focus of development in the aerospace industry. Existing electrical sensor systems are being modified to support the optical communications and optical fiber sensors are being developed to take advantage of the proposed optical fiber data buses. This paper discusses the development of a time-rate-of-decay optical fiber total air temperature sensor and its integration with an existing air-data sensor system. The combined temperature/air data system interfaces with the flight control computer over an optical data bus. The advantages of the time-rate-of-decay temperature sensor and the issues to the integration of the optical communication system are described.
