Abstract:

Westinghouse has applied digital standards advantageously for the U.S. Air Force on its latest weapon systems. At present Westinghouse is applying Mil-Std-1750A ISA, Mil-Std-1589B Jovial 73 HOL, and Mil-Std-1553B multiplex busing to three major programs B-1B Offensive Radar System, Improved ANAPG-66 Radar for the F-16, and AFTI F-16 Electro-Optical SensorTracker. Westinghouse has gone one step further than the digital standards. With U.S. Air Force encouragement Westinghouse has a program for maximum radar commonality among the B-1B ORS, F-16C, and the U.S. Army Sgt. York DIVAD Gun System. This paper will cover Westinghouses approach toward managing the application of the military standards across multiple programs with different prime contractors and services. Additionally, the method by which configuration control of standard mdoule hardware i.e., rational standardization maintained at Westinghouse will be discussed. Author
