Scope

This DAPHNE objectives will be tackled at four levels:
  -Networks  Adapt optical network technology for aircraft platforms
  -Modules  Define a modular infrastructure for aircraft fibre optic networks
  -Components  Develop photonic component technology for aircraft environments
  -Dissemination  Disseminate project results to aircraft industry to ensure effective uptake.

Networks

A wide range of fibre optic network topologies and techniques has been developed for terrestrial systems: these will be analysed, adapted and optimised for representative aircraft platforms (large & small aircraft; rotary & fixed wing).

Extended network functional and environmental testing under aircraft operating conditions will be carried out to verify network performance including critical system safety testing that analyses reliability and failure modes.

 

 

Modules

DAPHNE will define a scalable, modular infrastructure for aircraft photonic networks including node and interconnect concepts. In general, standard avionic boxes and interfaces were designed for electronic equipment, but are not optimised for photonics; a new avionic box standard will be promoted.

A modular building block system suitable for aircraft environments will be developed. Standard practices for optical signal management from circuit board level to the external connector interface will be defined.

 

 

Components

A wide range of fibre optic network topologies and techniques has been developed for terrestrial systems: these will be analysed, adapted and optimised for representative aircraft platforms (large & small aircraft; rotary & fixed wing).

Extended network functional and environmental testing under aircraft operating conditions will be carried out to verify network performance including critical system safety testing that analyses reliability and failure modes.
