Abstract:

Technical Objective Documents TODs are prepared to provide industry with Air Force objectives critical to maintaining aerospace superiority. This TOD, prepared by the AFWAL Avionics Lab., Plans Office, describes the technology required to meet future avionics operational needs. The Avionics Laboratory Investment Strategy is described. The technology program is described in terms of four technical areas which correspond to the groupings of the eight Laboratory Technology Planning Objectives TPOs. The technology approaches are discussed together with related applications to Air Force needs and requirements. Information from the FY87 Technical Investment Plans is included. Points of contact in the laboratory are identified for each Laboratory TPO. If areas of interest are discovered, industry or academic organizations are encouraged to discuss the objectives further with the Laboratory contact identified to maximize contributions to military technology. Areas of interesttechnologies include Navigation Surveillance Reconnaissance Electromagnetic warfare Fire control Weapon delivery Communications System architecture Information processing and control Subsystem integration Artificial intelligence ElectronicElectromagnetic device RD Radar Electro-optical technology Microelectronics Integrated communications,Navigation, Identification System integration Software Electronic warfare Digital avionics Airborne electronics and support electronics.
