Abstract: This program creates a fiber optic bi-directional repeater for mil-aerospace applications. This repeater boosts the optical signal to overcome link loss issues found in systems with multiple lossy connectors. This approach will rely on compact packaging of active optical device in a manner compatible with 29504 and NGCON termini.
Benefits: This program will enable data communications in systems with high link loss (> 20 dB). It is anticipated that commercial applications of embedded optical waveguides will require optical boosters for 'off-board' signal transmission.
