Unleashing Opportunities with Optical I/O for the Aerospace Industry
Tasked with maintaining a competitive footing worldwide, aerospace and defense organizations are increasingly exploring emerging technologies and architectural advances to address current challenges. These challenges include improving communications, strengthening defensive measures, enabling autonomous vehicle and unmanned aircraft operations, and engaging in battlefield operations that demand lightning-fast, coordinated information processing and interconnected systems capable of intelligent, real-time decision-making.
These organizations must find innovative solutions, as the limits of transistor density and Moore’s Law are bottlenecking systems needed for mission-critical tasks. New architectural models are needed to increase performance, reduce power needs, and contend with massive-volume data acquisition and processing requirements.
The promise of in-package optical I/O for aerospace addresses the demands of maintaining technological leadership in the changing global environment. In this solution brief, we discuss the capabilities of optical I/O for aerospace and its role in the development of new sensing and computer architectures that disaggregate the functional units within a system. This makes it possible to enable infrastructure enhancements and massively scalable interconnectivity, delivering wide-ranging benefits in the aerospace and defense sectors.
