Abstract
The present examination of the use of fiber-optic (FO) networks in launch vehicles proceeded from the definition of a data bus architecture able to supplant the mesh network that typically connects major second-stage avionics packages, as well as replacing the takeoff-minus-zero umbilical link between vehicle and launch complex. The analysis undertaken for such a system in the case of a Delta launcher gave attention to bus traffic, costs, and risk factors; on the basis of analysis results, a hybrid FO/electrical network was selected and its candidate termini were tested for ruggedness and reliability.
