Paper Abstract

There is now a body of in-service flight test experience of fiber optic hardware on vari-ous airframes. A brief summary will be presented plus general observations and conclusions emphasizing those matters that relate to installability, maintainability and in-service reliability of this technology. This experience is used to highlight those more critical areas which need further investigation and technical progress. Priorities are presented for further hardware development and testing which can serve to foster the earlier acceptance of this technology for full-scale production applications.
