Abstract : This report summarizes ARINC Research Corporation's efforts under Air Force Contract FO4606-79-G-0082, 'Standard Rack-Mounted and Panel-Mounted Avionics Interface Concepts Analysis.' The period of performance was 29 August 1980 through 15 June 1981. The technical areas addressed were the analysis and potential specification of rack-mounted avionics, cockpit-mounted control panels, and panel-mounted instruments. Contract tasks included conceptual studies of potential configurations of a Standard Avionics Integrated Control System (SAICS). The results of the SAICS analyses are reported separately in ARINC Research Publication 2258-02-1-2439, Cost Benefit and Failure Criticality Analyses of the Standard Avionics Integrated Control System (SAICS) Concept, June 1981. The concepts-analysis project described herein continues a contractual effort initiated by the Air Force in 1979 to determine whether a comprehensive Packaging, Mounting, and Environmental (PME) avionics interface standard would benefit Air Force aircraft. Comprehensive findings of that effort are documented in ARINC Research Publication 1753-01-1-2124, Standard Avionics Packaging, Mounting, and Cooling Baseline Study, January 1980, which addresses the applicability of commercial airline avionics to military aircraft, the cost benefits associated with Air Force PME standards, and a possible implementation scenario with recommended activities and schedules.
