The report presents the results of a study to apply Fault-Tolerance techniques to Avionics Systems Architectures. This study included the following tasks 1 definition of a general avionics baseline system consisting of Integrated Pilot Controls and Displays, Strapdown Inertial Reference Unit, Fly-By-Wire Automatic Flight Control Subsystem, Multiplex Data Bus, and Distributed Computation Network, 2 development of a fault-tolerant avionics Distributed Computation Subsystem, 3 development of optimum avionics system partitioning, redundancy, implementation, and redundancy management techniques, 4 development of subsystem fault detection, isolation, and recovery techniques, and 5 analysis and determination of the costs versus benefits of fault-tolerant avionics system design.
