FIBER OPTIC DESIGN GUIDELINES
|Publication Date:||27 August 2018|
Purpose of this Document
The purpose of ARINC Report 803 is to provide design and implementation guidelines together with a selection guide, providing a fiber optic system design engineer with documentation to assess the design requirements for an aerospace fiber optic installation.
The purpose of these guidelines is to assist in the identification and implementation of design requirements for aerospace fiber optic-based systems. The specification also includes recommendations for good practice and aspects of system testing.
Appendices to this standard cover the particular case of system design for ARINC Specification 664-compliant networks over a fiber optic physical layer, including an equipment interface specification to ensure interoperability of ARINC Specification 664 equipment.
