Abstract:

On 17-18 Mar 98, representatives from Boeing and Smiths Industries SI met in St. Louis for a Technical Interchange Meeting TIM in support of the Crash Survivable Flight Incident Recorder CSFIR integration into FA-18CD aircraft. A list of the TIM participants is in attachment 1. The objective of this meeting was to coordinate changes to the draft CSFIR Interface Control Document ICD, ICD-FA-18-075, Revision Preliminary 2. The ICD defines the CSFIR when installed on the FA-18 CD aircraft. The objective of the TIM was met. SI gained a better understanding of the DFIR emulation requirement. These understandings are listed below. However, in order for SI to scope the software development tasks necessary to integrate the VADRtrade name on the FA-18 aircraft further information is needed. A Preliminary 3 revision to the Interface Control Document was generated authored by Boeing based on inputs from the participants of this TIM and will be reviewed prior to the next TIM. The resulting action items from this TIM are indicated in the report.
