Abstract : There is a growing need to develop flexible/robust avionics to meet ever changing mission needs of the operational forces. Such needs may conflict with other characteristics required such as standardization, increased reliability, durability and integrity. Weapon system costs and associated avionics costs continue to increase while military budgets continue to shrink due to changing world conditions. Thus it is even more important to intelligently resolve these often conflicting forces driving development efforts. These evolving trends, conflicts and challenges will be examined in this Lecture Series with a view to enhancing dialogue, understanding and improved planning. This Lecture Series, sponsored by the Avionics Panel of AGARD, has been implemented by the Consultant and Exchange Programme.
