Transmissions in Aircraft on Unique Path wirEs (TAUPE)

Start date: Sep 1, 2008, End date: Feb 29, 2012,

"The technologies for power and data transmissions over unique path wires are strongly developed. The OPERA project made feasible High Speed/High Voltage transmissions for Power Line Communication. The U-Broad project demonstrated that Fast Ethernet (100 Mb/s) can be provided over existing telephone network cabling. But, even if these technologies have been rapidly exploited in the automotive sect ...
