Abstract : The report discusses new concepts in the areas of waveguide interconnection losses, switches and switching networks, and frequency-selective and broadband directional couplers derived from a theoretical analysis of propagation in optical waveguide components. It lists the functions which IOCs are expected to perform and suggests specific configurations for avionics information transfer and processing systems using IOC components. (Author)
