Paper Abstract

The interconnection harness is a most basic and critical avionic system component that must support performance goals yet be easily installed, durable, maintainable and supportable. Decreased complexity and weight with increased signal bandwidth and multiplex capability are urgently needed. Fiber optics is proposed as a replacement for conventional wire harnesses. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) document ARD50020 details various industry concerns with present fiber optic hardware and lists attributes of future needs.
