Briefing Objective

The first Executive Telecom Briefing on "Military and Aerospace Fiber Optics Markets" will be held September 21, 2009, just before the annual IEEE AVFOP Conference at the Omni La Mansión del Rio Hotel, San Antonio. After many years of delay, fiber optics are now being accepted in a wide range of military, aerospace, commercial, and security applications. This briefing will review various existing applications in both the military and commercial aerospace industries and will forecast future demand. Problems still exist in the handling, operations, and maintenance areas. These will be addressed by several speakers. New technologies such as WDM-LAN, Integrated Optics, and Plastic Optical Fibers applied to aerospace applications will also be addressed. The breifing will cover both mission critical and non critical applications such as the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) and In-flight Entertainment (IFE).
