We.7.Le Mt-Blanc.1
ON SCALABLE, ADAPTABLE AND FAULT-TOLERANT DESIGNS FOR AN INTEGRATED AVIONICS PHOTONIC NETWORK
João Baptista, GMV, Portugal
The aviation industry is looking for new solutions for embedded networks, which deal with increasing amounts of data. Can photonic components produce reliable and fast-enough networks to harness safety-critical systems? Can generic COTS-based designs produce a scalable and adaptable integrated network, lighter than its copper alternatives, for such systems?

AVIONIC NETWORK DESIGN
Jiang Zhang, Yi An, Michael Berger, Anders Clausen; Technical University of Denmark, Denmark
In order to optimize avionic transport networks, this paper proposes two novel heuristic mechanisms to solve wavelength and fibre assignment problems with systems' physical isolation constrains brought by different avionic systems' diverse Design Assurance Levels.
 
We.7.Le Mt-Blanc.3
MODEL-BASED ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN OF AVIONIC OPTICAL NETWORKS IN THE DAPHNE PROJECT
Armin Zimmermann, Karin Schulze; Technische Universität Ilmenau, Germany
Future avionic optical networks should be able to carry all communication links of an aircraft in an integrated way while fulfilling hard non-functional requirements. We show how alternative architectures are modelled and their performance can be evaluated to check for an efficient solution.
 
We.7.Le Mt-Blanc.4
APPLICATION OF PASSIVE OPTICAL NETWORKS FOR AIRCRAFT
Michael Pisarik, Ilja Kopacek; SQS Vlaknova optika a.s., Czech Republic
The adaptation of FTTH networks for highly reliable avionic networks is demonstrated.   Planar splitters, which are key components for the PON have been developed to meet avionic standards such as RTCA DO 160E(D) .
 
We.7.Le Mt-Blanc.5
WIRELESS SERVICES DISTRIBUTION OVER GPON FOR AVIONICS
L. Pessoa, D. Coelho, J. Oliveira, J. Castro and H. Salgado; INESC Porto, Portugal
The integration of wireless and infotainment services over a GPON for avionics is demonstrated. Simultaneous bi-directional transmission of
WiFi, GSM and UWB signals overlaid in the 1550 to 1590 nm band employing reflective EAMs is assessed
