A fiber optic system can be designed, assembled and installed with many options for active and passive components and system elements. Interconnection systems should be designed with a detailed BOM, including fiber/cable, connectors, ruggedization materials and other passive components for the desired application. The selection of these items should be specific to the requirements of the system when considering environmental and mechanical limitations, and from the standpoint of the users who will be installing, maintaining and possibly repairing the system sometime in the future. Proper installation, maintenance and repair training is essential. The paper will review various up-to-date alternatives, particularly for mil-aero applications, available when selecting components at design-in stage and discussing options for different scenarios of required optical performance. Considerations of component selection with regard to capabilities of the installers, maintenance and repair personnel and other key people who will be responsible for the success of the system will also be discussed. Training resources will be discussed. A fiber optic system when compared to an electrical system is not necessarily more difficult to install and maintain, but training for key different issues is a must. With appropriate component selection at the design stage and adequate training of installers/handlers is completed, the fiber optic system will be successful. © 2013 SPIE. Source

The current flight management system (FMS), CMA-9000, from CMC Electronics-Esterline, only optimises the vertical flight profile in terms of the speed of the aircraft. This article defines a methodology that optimises the speeds and altitudes for the vertical profile, obtaining a trajectory that reduces the global flight cost. The performance database (PDB) provided by CMC Electronics-Esterline is presently used on aircraft such as the Lockheed L-1011, the Airbus A310 and the Sukhoi Superjet 100 Russian regional jet. The PDB is used as the reference to design different trajectory optimisation algorithms to obtain the altitude where the aircraft fuel efficiency is the best. These algorithms are compared with the part-task trainer (PTT), simulator that represents the FMS CMA-9000, supplied by CMC Electronics-Esterline as well. To validate the results, the FlightSIM® software is used, which considers a complete aircraft aerodynamic model for its simulations, giving accurate results and very close to reality. Source
