The U.S. Navy has been encouraging advanced development concepts aimed at increasing the aircraft instrumentation performance for multi-platform application of 1990s weapons systems. The system integration RD objectives are to produce a system architecture easily adaptable to many platforms technology objectives are to determine the state of the art for displays, electronics, and controls and the human factors objectives are to determine the proper human-machine interfaces so that the ultimate crew station will be capable of providing the pilot with the proper display and controls performance to satisfy the diverse requirements of fighter, attack, ASW, fixed-wing, rotary-wing, and VSTOL platforms in both a one-man crew of two-man crew matrix. All datacontrol interfaces among units of this crew station system and other platforms subsystems will be via digital data buses and video multiplex buses. No individual discrete signal, data, or control lines will be needed. This paper discusses the six interfaces necessary to ensure the optimum development of this crew station, the predicted platform mission improvements, and the requisite life-cycle cost considerations. This concept will serve as a basis for planning the integration of the necessary hardware and software features in current and future weapons systems.
