Abstract:

The objective of the Avionic System Architecture Investigation AVSAR II was to investigate the extent to which multiplex technology and integrated controldisplay techniques could be applied to the AH-1S Night Cobra Step 4. The primary purpose of the study was to determine if the integration of a multiplex data bus system would have a significant impact on aircraft system weight. Secondary objectives were to determine whether a reduction of crew workload and a reduction of cockpit real estate requirements could be effected through implementation of the new architecture. This technical report describes the system analysis, system definition, and system integration considerations that resulted in a Step 4 Night Cobra avionic system with integrated controlsdisplays and a multiplex data bus.
