Abstract:

Progress is described towards realization of a multiterminal fiber optics data bus capable of handling the information flow requirements of a modern military aircraft. Major accomplishments include development of novel access couplers containing a glass block with an internal mirror, and sensitive optical receivers using a field-effect transistor to amplify the integrated current output from a silicon photodiode. A five-terminal, unidirectional data bus system designed for 5 Mbs operation was successfully demonstrated.
