Abstract
An evaluation is made of NASP vehicle features which bear on the need for, and the feasibility of, incorporating fiber-optic structural-state diagnostic sensors. The most likely application appears to be fiber-optic data links for high-bandwidth communications; this is followed in order of diminishing likelihood by distributed sensing systems, advanced optical transduction techniques, fiber-optic microphones, and nonintrusive measurements of flowfield density. Specific fiber-optic sensors will be employed where they are overwhelmingly favored by a cost-benefit analysis.
