Abstract:

The study was conducted to develop requirements and techniques for applying fiber optics to the SOlid State Electric Logic SOSTEL system in general and to develop a design for demonstrating the application of fiber optics to the SOSTEL II DHS brassboard system in specific. To achieve both objectives, an assessment was made of the characteristics of optical components as applicable to multiplex systems for military aircraft. Components evaluated include optical fibers, light sources, photodiodes, connectors, scramblers and tees. This assessment considered both functional and installationenvironmental aspects. This foundation was then used to evolve a number of approaches for interconnecting a multiplex system consisting of two processors and up to 32 remote terminals. The optimum approach was determined to be a radial system with passive branching devices. Modified author abstract
