Welcome to the Avionics and Vehicle Fiber-Optics and Photonics Conference

10 - 12 November 2015

Fess Parker
Santa Barbara CA, USA

We would like to welcome you to the Avionics and Vehicle Fiber-Optics and Photonics Conference 2015 (AVFOP) in Santa Barbara, California USA!

 

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.

 

The conference program will feature select expert invited speakers, but we again rely on a strong contributed paper program, and ask all of you to submit your work and meet us in Santa Barbara in 2015.

 

The AVFOP conference has attracted a strong group of exhibitors in past years and we expect this trend to continue, providing the participants with an opportunity for direct interaction with vendors during the conference.

 

We welcome your participation in the AVFOP 2015, and look forward to seeing you in Santa Barbara!
