Abstract : This report consists of two volumes. Volume I is concerned with the definition and design of standard interfaces between avionics subsystems and a multiplex data bus. These interfaces are embodied in the form of modular Remote Terminals, as described in this volume. The interface and data flow requirements of the Night AX, A-7D, and advanced A-7D avionics suits are identified and analyzed. A Remote Terminal design is presented which is based on computer-aided analyses of requirements, as well as detailed analyses of various design aspects of the terminal. Recommendations for future study and changes to MIL-ST-1553 are suggested, and their impact on the Remote Terminal Design is assessed. Volume II contains complete signal flow listings for the Night AX, the A-7D and an advanced A-7D, the three systems analyzed in the study. In addition, it includes detailed descriptions of computer programs used in the analysis of subsystem data flow and interface requirements, and detailed listings of results output by the computer. Due to the size of this volume and its contents, it was not published for distribution. (Author)
