The features of our Monitoring Line System ( MLS) already applied on terrestrial fiber-optic networks and its adaptation for aircraft setting are presentment in this paper. Further, the usage of the same monitoring technology as well as the digital one on monitoring of embedded fibers in the composite shell of the aircraft is explored. Embedded fiber could be used for both network, such as AIRcraft Passive Optical Network (AirPON), and for health and stress monitoring of the composite shell. Within the framework of embedded fiber in the composite shell, termination possibilities with multi-channel MT ferrules were investigated.
