AS-3 Fiber Optics and Applied Photonics Committee
The SAE AS-3 Fiber Optics and Applied Photonics committee addresses all facets of fiber optics systems and applied photonics¿design, maintenance, and in-service experience. It provides definition and support, and assures standardized components and systems approaches for fiber optic data buses. This includes sensors, architecture, and requirements for advanced fiber and electro optic technologies. The group is comprised of four subcommittees dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for fiber optics and applied photonics systems. These subcommittees include:
AS-3A Fiber Optic Applications
AS-3B Fiber Optic Supportability
AS-3C Fiber Optic Components
AS-3D Fiber Optic Process Definition
Participants in the SAE AS-3 committee include OEMs, suppliers, aircraft fiber optics and applied photonics systems companies, consulting firms, government and others across the aerospace and defense industries.
