Paper Abstract

Preliminary results on development of a fiber optic system for transmitting multiple channels of data over a single optical fiber cable are given. The system employs advanced WDM and TDM techniques to greatly reduce weight and volume of interconnect wiring on modern aircraft. The following components are described: (1) fiber optic receiver for reception of data bursts, (2) a 6 channel TDM (mux and demux) for data rates over 175KBPS per channel, (3) an 8 channel WDM multiplexer and demultiplexer. Problem areas associated with multi-channel (greater than 4) WDM technology are discussed.
