Abstract:

The army vehicle electronics networking is complex and is receiving considerable attention in the concept of open and standard architecture. Electronic devices are from multiple vendors with unique interfaces. A successful battle depends on the effective interoperable communication between these devices. No commercial open architecture available to address interoperability, scalability, and security issues. Current standard network protocols, topologies, and bandwidth requirements are evaluated, and three architecture proposals are presented and evaluated. Hardware software service oriented open network architecture for army vehicle electronics is presented. The latency, single point failure, scalability, security, and redundancy of the proposed architecture are evaluated. Initial evaluation has shown favorable results.
