Trace Technologies revolutionary software tool sets new boundaries for Commercial Aviation

The use of optical fibre in military aviation has been established for many years and it seems the time is now right for the technology to make the jump to commercial aerospace applications too.

Trace Technologies is coming to the market with its groundbreaking software tool, PISD, at a time when there is a general acceptance that fibre-optically linked systems can provide real advantages in terms of performance and weight-saving for commercial aircraft - and the ability to plan, test and prove fibre-optic cable harness designs both quickly and cost effectively will mean manufacturers can roll out high performance aircraft in a much shorter time than was previously possible.

Trace Technologies provides the solution with PISD because it supports aerospace system engineers with the design and validation of fibre optic cable harnesses. Adoption of PISD provides systems engineers with a tool that:  

• 1. Ensures the harness design is right first time, every time

• 2. Automatically determines if the harness design meets the system\'s power budget

• 3. Automatically determines if the harness design meets the system\'s bandwidth requirements

• 4. Accurately models attenuation and dispersion of fibre optic signals using advanced ray-tracing techniques

• 5. Provides complete documentation

• 6. Supports the drive to reduce the weight of aircraft and reduce fuel costs  

Trace Technologies has produced a 30-minute visual presentation on the technology behind the revolutionary PISD and the effects the product will have on the future engineering of commercial aircrafts. The presentation is available for free on DVD and can also be downloaded via an external link provided by the Trace Technologies team.

The visual presentation and technical demonstration, including interviews with Commercial Director of Trace Technologies, Geoff Andrews, provides system engineers with a detailed insight into:

• 1. The optical fibre challenges facing aircraft manufacturers

• 2. Why existing optical fibre design techniques do not suit the aerospace industry

• 3. How PISDdramatically acceleratesthe design and development process

• 4. A preview of PISD and its technology  

The most important consideration at this time of change in the industry is to have the right guidance and support, so along with the free DVD, Trace is offering free consultations to system engineers to show how this new technology can easily overcome the design challenges that have been traditionally associated with fibre optic cables.  

For your free demonstration of PISD or a copy of the DVD presentation or if you would just like a chat with the Trace Technologies team, please telephone Trace Technologies on +44 (0) 1745 535169 or email info@tracetechnologies.co.uk,
