Abstract : The report covers the digital avionics information system (DAIS) definition study which was intended to define the concepts for low cost avionics for the 1980s aircraft. A DAIS core was defined to consist of processor ensemble, controls/displays, information transfer system, and software. The application of this core to solve the avionics problems was addressed and the required characteristics of each core element defined. In addition to solving the avionics problem, it was found that the DAIS core had great potential for increasing systems maintenance capability while reducing AGE requirements. DAIS must be designed to meet these requirements, as opposed to adding onto an existing system, if the full capability is to be achieved. (Author)
