 Aerospace Photonics Sensors and Systems



  • Graham Wild, RMIT University, Australia



There are two significant issues in aircraft operations, safety and cost, where fuel remains to be the single biggest operational cost. Therefore, it is essential that we have novel systems which offer improved safety and reliability while reducing weight to reduce fuel burn. Photonic systems have already proven that they are a safer and greener option for use on board aircraft, specifically for use in data buses. Further developments are required in two areas. The first of these is the potential application of novel technologies and systems for use in aerospace. The second is in terms of the reliability and the n airwor thiness of current mature photonic systems and components for safe, effective, and efficient use on board aircraft and spacecraft. The pillars of safety and cost/weight are also applicable in space based systems. As such, photonic sensing and associated systems are an essential in space platforms and systems.
