The fiber-optic air data system devised for the Indian National Aeronautical Laboratory's Light Canard Research Aircraft is not affected by EMI and is substantially lighter and less power- consuming than a copper wiring-based system. Expansion of the system to eight channels will be easy, and eventual expansion to 16 channels can be accomplished with only minor modifications. Processed fiber-optic signals are displayed in the cockpit via LCD system, in recognition of LEDs' insufficient brightness for daylight display; speed and altitude data are conveyed to the pilot.
