AVFOP 2015 - title

The Fess Parker
10 – 12 November 2015

AVFOP 2015 - venue


The aerospace & vetronics industries have 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 & vetronics fiber optic system architectures, networking schemes, and components evolve and mature.  This application-oriented conference will provide an international forum for leaders, researchers, engineers, and manufacturers to convene and discuss issues of deploying photonics-based avionics and vetronics technologies specifically in harsh environments.



Exhibition Dates
Tuesday November 10 8:00 am to 6:30 pm
Wednesday November 11 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
Thursday November 12 8:00 am to 3:00 pm

Primary software interests:

OptiSystem: Optical Communication System Design Suite

OptiFDTD: Finite-Difference Time-Domain Software
OptiBPM: Waveguide Optics Design Software

OptiSPICE: Opto-Electronic Circuit Design Software

OptiGrating: Integrated and Fiber Optical Gratings Design Software
OptiFiber: Optical Fiber Design Software

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.

Twelve 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.
