Splices, Fiber Optic, For Aerospace Inter-Connection Systems


This specification covers design and performance requirements of mechanical fiber optic cable splices for optical distribution systems in aerospace vehicles and provides directions for qualification and procurement of such devices.


Fiber optic cable design characteristics are uniquely related to various aerospace vehicle applications. As a result, splices are necessarily constructed for specific cable types. Evaluation of each splice performance shall be with the cable type for which it was intended. Typically, mechanical fiber optic splices have unique assembly instructions. Splices that are qualified to the same detail specification must be assembled using the same procedure and tools. All assembly instructions shall be presented and documented in accordance with this specification.
