Abstract

A scalable OCDMA platform for testing different avionics applications at Lockheed Martin has been designed and built. The platform enables communication at OC-24 per user with raw BER<10-12 using fast wavelength-hopping, time-spreading prime codes with picosecond optical pulses. A novel optical encoder/decoder pair enables a connectivity approaching a so-called 'one-time pad' security and eavesdropping studies.
