By spectral analysis, and using joint time–frequency representations, we present the theoretical basis to design invariant bandlimited Airy pulses with an arbitrary degree of robustness and an arbitrary range of single-mode fiber chromatic dispersion. The numerically simulated examples confirm the theoretically predicted pulse partial invariance in the propagation of the pulse in the fiber.
