Automated Assembly of Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables - The FOIT Program

Posted by Paul Jortberg on Mon, Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:41 AM

Photonics, with its virtually infinite bandwidth, electrical noise immunity, small size, low cost, and increased capacity are inserted into a number of military platforms to handle higher data rates and larger traffic volumes. Such increased data rates between the various subsystems drive the interconnect solution to be fiber optics.
