1 December 1991 Review of the Fiber Optic Control System Integration program
Author Affiliations +
Fiber optics can provide improved reliability, for control and monitoring of advanced aircraft but the technology must develop credibility in functional operation. Testing under realistic environmental conditions is necessary with information feedback provided to the component designers. A NASA / NAVY program, called FOCSI (Fiber Optic Control System Integration) is directed to these issues and is discussed in this paper.
