This paper documents recent progress in WDM LAN standards that enable capacity upgrades for on-board aircraft networks to support growth in aggregate bandwidth of platforms and applications in the next 10-25 years. The projected growth is expected to be orders of magnitude greater than those supported by traditional avionics backbone buses. WDM systems and networks can result in substantial reduction in infrastructure complexity, improved mission flexibility, aircraft network reconfiguration, and security.
