The role of fiber optics on next-generation commercial aircraft is considered. The benefits and difficulties associated with fiber optics on aircraft are reviewed, as well as the most promising near-term fiber optic technologies for aircraft applications. An overview of the Fiber Optics Readiness Program at Douglas Aircraft Company is presented, and some likely fiber optic interfaces are given.
