Abstract

A high performance extension of the space plug-and-play avionics (SPA) technology is described based on the addition of optical fiber interconnection. This optical SPA (“SPA-O”), due to the bandwidth potential, provides the possibility of moving unprecedented amounts of data and rendering super-computing systems rapidly in orbital platforms. By exploiting the ideas of SPA, the optical properties of SPA-O components can be added to electronic datasheets embedded within the component so that the system-at-large can discover these components and exploit them in dynamically provisionable optical networks formed on demand.
