Abstract : There will be a need for a weapon switching/adapter capability in the interface between future digital fire control systems and the weapons to be set. In order to understand better how to answer this need a weapon interface configuration has been postulated. The report describes a weapon switching/adapter concept for use in such an interface. Basic design goals are defined, component and configuration trade-offs are discussed, a laboratory unit is described and an evaluation of the selected approach is presented. (Author)
