Abstract
This work introduces the concept of a digital Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) network for small avionic and space platforms. For packaging and heat transfer efficiency, all optical wavelength sources occupy a common location. Addressable wavelengths are allocated to each receiver, which may be reached by selection or tuning of a transmitter wavelength. Individual delays may be applied to assure synchronization at each receiver. The output of each individual source wavelength is pre-modulated with a clock signal. Signal modulation is applied by passing or rejecting the clock signals. Due to the simplicity of the modulation, the control plane functions can be merged with the data plane functions. Although the concept is based on a single data rate, the digital WDM LAN concept can possibly be extended to process packet and analog payloads.
