Abstract

Achieving affordable high speed fiber optic communication networks for airplane systems has proved to be challenging. In this paper we describe a summary of the EU Framework 7 project DAPHNE (Developing Aircraft Photonic Networks). DAPHNE aimed to exploit photonic technology from terrestrial communications networks, and then develop and optimize aircraft photonic networks to take advantage of the potential cost savings. The main areas of emphasis were on: multiplexing networks; providing standard components; simplifying installation; and reducing through life support costs. DAPHNE (fifteen partners from seven nations) finished in February 2013; and was supported by the European Commission?s Seventh Framework Programme, although the consortium members are continuing with in-house developments.
