Paper Abstract

After two decades of research and development, optical fiber and photonics are finally at the threshold of application to flight-critical systems in military and commercial aircraft. Flight tests and laboratory tests have demonstrated that photonic components, sensors and optical fiber can withstand the harsh environments of aircraft applications and meet the safety requirements necessary to achieve certification by the military and the Federal Aviation Administration.
