Abstract
A novel bidirectional fiber optic communication system has been designed and developed at DREP. It is part of a new magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) system currently under development by the MAD Group. The fiber optic system is designed to transfer asynchronous data through a single optical fiber between an aircraft and a tethered bird. Low magnetic content, minimal size and weight, low power consumption, and wide temperature range operation of the bird section of the system are requirements that are critical to the proper functioning of the entire MAD system. The communication system described in this paper meets all of these requirements, as well as providing exceptional accuracy and reliability.
