This report describes the development and demonstration of the High Speed Data Bus system, a 50 Million bits per second Mbps local data network intended for avionics applications in advanced military aircraft. The Advanced System Avionics ASAPAVE PILLAR program provided the avionics architecture concept and basic requirements. Designs for wire and fiber optic media were produced and hardware demonstrations were performed. An efficient, robust token- passing protocol was developed and partially demonstrated. The report covers the requirements specifications, the trade-offs made, and the resulting designs for both a coaxial wire media system and a fiber optics design. Also, the development of a message-oriented media access protocol is described, from requirements definition through analysis, simulation and experimentation. Finally, the testing and demonstrations conducted on the breadboard and brassboard hardware is presented. Keywords High speed data bus Avionics architecture Multiplex Fiber optics Local area network.
