A fiberoptic LAN master-slave configuration is proposed for digital data transmission on aircraft. The LAN is acceptable to the MIL-STD-1773 fiberoptic data bus. The maximum bandwidth of incoming data at any substation or remote terminal is 200 Hz. Consideration is given to the operation of the LAN and the process of eliminating a faulty substation or subsystem, or switching over to a redundant bus.Also, applications of the network for ground based systems such as missile launching are discussed.
