After years of research and development, it appears that extensive use of fiber optics on aircraft is approaching realization. The status of fiber-optic components and systems for aircraft is overviewed, and efforts to develop standards and standardized test procedures are discussed. The accomplishments of the first 2 years of the Fiber Optics Readiness Program at Douglas Aircraft Company is reviewed, and an insight into future efforts is provided.
