J R Todd: 2182. Integrating Fly-By-Light Systems. 1993.



Since the inception of critical fly-by-wire systems, the commercial and military aerospace industries have struggled with the question of how to protect these systems from upset due to electromagnetic interference (EMI) without the weight and maintenance penalties associated with extensive shielding of wire bundles. The application of fly-by-Light technologies to control and sensing functions could substantially reduce the electromagnetic susceptibility of critical electronic flight control systems while preserving their benefits. This paper discusses fly-by-light technologies and systems and describes the work at DougIas Aircraft to develop and integrate a fly-by-light architecture.
