Conventional data buses, telemetry links, and sensors using wire harnesses as the transmission media suffer from numerous shortcomings, especially when utilized in spacecraft. This paper describes fiber optic networks which could be implemented in launch vehicles in the near-term. Special emphasis will be placed on the increase in reliability which fiber optics affords over conventional cable/wire approaches.
