Currently, special purpose hardware is designed for each new weapon system, with little or no capability of being easily modified or adapted to other similar applications. This paper describes a group of small, low power signal processing modules, with a compatible, flexible structure for intercommunication of data and command and control information. Instead of designing systems from scratch for a unique application, system designers will be able to configure and then program the standard digital modules into small or large systems, optimized to their particular requirements. Implementing hardware in this manner will substantially reduce development time, testing requirements, logistics problems, and life cycle costs, and increase the versatility and reliability of the resulting product.
