AVFOP 2014

Hyatt Regency Atlanta
11 – 13 November 2014

Atlanta


The aerospace industry has made great strides in recent years deploying fiber optics and photonics technology on commercial and military platforms. This trend will continue to grow as avionics fiber optic system architectures, networking schemes, and components evolve and mature. In parallel with data and video transmission, photonics technology for analog/RF, flight control, free-space communication, and vehicle monitoring applications will have an increasing role in future aerospace platforms. This application-oriented conference will provide a common international forum for leaders, researchers, engineers, technicians, logisticians, manufacturers, and instructors to convene and discuss all aspects of severe environment fiber optic component, systems, reliability, maintainability, producibility and supportability technology, and its future direction.

The first AVFOP was held in 2004, as a result of a U.S. government and industry consensus championing a standalone fiber optics and photonics conference dedicated to the field of avionics. In recent years, the aerospace, land, and sea vehicle industries have made great strides deploying fiber optics and photonics technology on commercial and military platforms. This trend will continue to grow as fiber optic system architectures, networking schemes, and components evolve and mature.

Eleven years later, the AVFOP conference provides an indispensable international forum for the academic, industry, and government R&D community developing fiber-optic / photonic components and system technologies for avionics. While from the beginning the topics discussed and solicited have been inclusive of all mobile platforms, this year, in addition to avionics, we would like to specifically encourage papers covering  fiber optic / photonics technologies across mobile platforms, on  surface ships, submarines, and ground vehicles.
