Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to review the current technology base, developing technologies, and the potential to apply them to meet military avionics requirements. The review also examined the technology integration methods used in the avionics community in order to develop a more efficient and more affordable avionics architectural strategy for the future. It provides a bold vision for the application of advanced technology to naval avionics. This study was accomplished as a cooperative venture by members of the Naval Aviation Systems team and over 50 leading firms from the electronics and aerospace industries. The study team also included representatives from the Air Force, Advanced Research Projects Agency, National Institute for Standards and Technology, and the Defense Systems Management College. Their goal was the review emerging technologies, investigate their potential cost savings. The Joint Aeronautical Commanders Group JACG will now use this study as a basis for developing and implementing a better acquisition partnership between the military services and industry. This report is the only comprehensive compilation of todays avionics technology. It is a great reference book that contains easily understandable descriptions of todays technologies, including bus architectures, back planes, processors, software, and just about every aspect of avionics design and development. It is a reference book that should be retained.
