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.
