Harness design software could help reduce aircraft weight and bandwidth

A new design tool has just been launched that will allow system engineers to design, install, test and build fibre optic cable harnesses for next generation aircraft. Trace Technologies developed the Photonic Interconnect Systems Design tool (PISD), which it hopes will significantly reduce the time and cost involved in designing pre-prototype harnesses.

According to co-founder Geoff Fisher, the software should save 60 per cent of the cost and time needed to deliver a pre-prototype harness. "It will allow engineers to design harnesses with greater speed and confidence," he says. The aerospace industry is under pressure to develop more fuel efficient aircraft that will fly longer distances and provide more in-flight services such as wireless internet, video and telephony.Full report (246 words) is available by subscription:
