Success stories

Optical interconnect for upgraded military aircraft sub-systems

Military aircrafts either consist of rotary-wing or fixed-wing aircraft that are used for combat or surveillance missions, or for the transportation of military personnel and supplies. Many of the global military aircraft fleets are designes to be in service for decades. Nowadays, because of budget constraints, defense administrations are focusing on upgrading and retrofitting the existing fleet of aircraft with advanced avionics, flight control, weapons, and other systems to make their aircraft more efficient and keep pace with the changing nature of modern warfare. In addition, several surveillance systems are being installed in airplanes as emergency warning systems to enhance aircraft situational awareness of pilots and reduce their workload. Special mission airplanes and UAVs are also being deployed for reconnaissance and surveillance missions across land and maritime borders, which necessitates the retrofitting of communication, navigation and surveillance (CNS) systems into existing military fleets.

Optical transceivers upgrade for 100/140 µm aircraft optical cabling

The LightABLE™ embedded optical module can directly drive 100 μm fiber optic cables commonly found in older aircraft, eliminating the need to re-cable the aircraft to achieve higher interconnect bandwidth. New or upgraded sensors and computer systems offer great benefits to existing military and commercial aircraft but often necessitate interconnect bandwidth of 10 Gbps or more. Unfortunately, replacing older 100 μm optical fibers in aircraft to support this higher bandwidth can be prohibitively expensive.
