Review Of The IEEE Conference On Avionics, Fiber-Optics And Photonics 2009 (AVFOP-2009)
The aerospace industry has made real strides in recent years deploying fiber optics and photonics technology on commercial and military platforms. This trend will continue to grow as avionics system architectures, networking schemes, and components evolve and mature. In parallel with data and video transmission, photonics technology for analog/RF, flight control, free-space communication, and vehicle monitoring applications will have an increasing role in aerospace platforms. This webinar will review the progress that has been made in applying fiber optics to commercial and military systems, provide an analysis of papers presented at the AVFOP Conference, and highlight technology needs that still need development.
