This technical report describes those improvements made to the Store Interface Data Handling Analysis - Phase I for automating AircraftStore Electrical Compatibility Analysis and computerized testing procedures. Until now, a manual method was used to compare hardcopy aircraft stores management system design data against store interface data generated by the Phase I Data Processing System. The Improved system eliminates this time consuming task by automatically performing the complete interface compatibility analysistest. A set of universal aircraft data documentation formats and new computer programs were developed for this added system capability. The new computer programs were designed to disclose any electrical imcompatibility that may exist between the aircraft and store selected for comparison. New computer printouts provide detail pin to pin and general interface compatibility information. Diagnostic message printouts are also provided to define each specific incompatibility condition that was detected. The improved system may be used to evaluate or verify the adequacy of an aircraft to control its existing store complement. Essentially, the improved system would compare the electrical design limits of the aircraft stores management system against store electrical requirements that are contained in the AFATL Store Data File. Any incompatible or marginal interface condition will be detected. The system improvements described in this report will greatly reduce the time and cost associated with analyzing aircraft and stores form an electrical interface compatibility standpoint.
