This report describes the results of the first two phases of the MFBARS radio architecture study. This study was aimed at establishing a cost effective and volume-conserving method of integrating tactical CNI avionics equipments. The goal was innovative integration of these systems, by a method which would allow the incorporation of new capabilities and which would take advantage of technological advances, both in-hand and projected within the near-term future 1985. Such integration is needed to reduce spiraling life cycle costs and to alleviate severe hardware space limitation problems in tactical aircraft. During Phase II, ITT conducted a top-down, system-oriented study of the selected system approach. System configuration details and performance parameters were refined. In addition, to minimize system development risk and to provide guidance on the best direction along which MFBARS should proceed, recommended plans were defined for development of the system and supporting technology. The main emphasis of this report is on the final recommended development plans. Author
