Abstract : The report contains the results of a study to conceptually define the Digital Avionics Information System (DAIS). A predesign analysis provided the Air Force with sufficient information to define the best design approach for the development of the four DAIS core elements. Core elements are identified as (1) a microprogrammable processor system, (2) a multiplex/interface system, (3) a modular software system, and (4) an integrated control and display system. In addition, the requirements for a digital flight control system were identified; and associated DAIS processing, control and display, and distribution requirements necessary for function implementation were determined.
