During October 1985, sixty-five individuals military and civilian representing nine NATO nations, four AGARD panels, and the NATO staff, participated in a workshop at SHAPE Technical Center, The Hague, The Netherlands. The workshop was sponsored by the NATO AGARD Avionics Panel and the topic was The Potential Impact of Developments in Electronic Technology on the Future Conduct of Air Warfare. The workshop consisted of subpanel briefings Air Warfare, Technology, and Applications, subpanel meetings, and general discussions. The baseline for the workshop was a presentation of threat and tactics envisioned for the 2000-2010 time frame by the Air Warfare Subpanel. This paper presnets a synopsis of the conclusions reached by the Systems Subpanel. The paper first describes the new technology of avionic system integration and the elements that comprise it the functions which this new technology enables a system design methodology and finally, the impact of the new avionic system attributes on operation and support and the conduct of air warfare.
