Fiber Optic Interconnect Solutions — Section B
MIL-DTL-38999 type fiber optic interconnection systems are the recognized standard for all military and commercial aerospace
applications that depend on high levels of connector reliability, environmental and mechanical performance and low dB insertion
loss. Designed specifically for air and space, the Glenair
Opto-Electronic Interconnect Solutions for Aerospace and Other Harsh Environments
Harsh-Environment Photonic and Fiber Optic Technologies Enable Ethernet, Digital Video, High-Speed Data, and Signal Aggregation
Up to 10 Gbps and Beyond
Commercial and military avionic platforms, as well as In-Flight Communications and Entertainment Systems, Flight Displays, and Data Servers for aerospace applications increasingly rely on high-performance, harsh-environment opto-electronic (also known as Photonic) modules that convert electrical-to-optical and optical-to-electrical data streams at rates from 1 Gbps up to 10 Gbps and beyond. The harsh environmental requirements of commercial and military aerospace (temperature extremes, vibration and shock, EMI shielding, hermetic packaging and so on) are not adequately addressed by commercial-off-the-shelf fiber optic interconnects and transceiver/receiver assemblies. Many other applications also require opto-electronic modules that can operate in harsh environments including spacecraft, military ground vehicles, navy ships, above-ground and sub-sea oil and gas production plants as well as collider physics and nuclear plants.
The need for ruggedized photonic packaging in aerospace systems, as well as increased focus on reduced weight and small form-factor
technologies, has led Glenair to develop a revolutionary new opto-electronic (photonic) product series that provides photonic
transmitter and receiver functions, fiber-to-copper media conversion, and signal aggregation that can integrate directly into
interconnect wiring systems. These harsh-environment interconnect technologies — leveraging
