Paper Abstract

Avionics for the advanced aerospace systems is becoming increasingly more sophisticated to meet the demands of on-board automated real time control, diagnostics and health monitoring. This requires a large number of sensors and processors distributed throughout the vehicle. A large amount of data and control/command signals have to be handled by the network onboard. The weight, noise immunity, high bandwidth and power consumption are some of the advantages offered by FO-LAN's (Fiberoptic Local Area networks). These features serve the avionic network needs very well. Designing a FO-LAN's is generally done on an individual basis and every new FO-LAN has to be designed from scratch. Recent advances in Al and CIM (Computer Integrated Manufacturing) have helped develop powerful techniques for creating design environments where components and networks can be designed (and simulated, if desired) directly from system specifications. We are using such techniques to develop a design environment for avionics FO-LAN's.
