Abstract : This plan presents a program for the development of an inter-computer/peripheral data transfer mechanism specification for information transfer between combat system components by means of a shared data path, such as a data bus. This specification will be applied initially to the next generation Guided Missile Destroyer, DDGX. In 1978, the Deputy Assistant Secretary to the Navy (Research, Engineering and Systems) sponsored a Data Bus Panel to investigate the issues. The Air Force has almost ten year's experience employing MIL-STD-1553 as a Government-furnished information (GFI) data bus standard. The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) currently is adopting the same approach in the F-18, which uses two AN/AYK-14s with MIL-STD-1553 interfaces. In addition, the Navy AN/UYK-43 and AN/UYK-44 computer procurements will provide this bus interface option, as well as other point-to-point interfaces, like STANAG 4153, that are suitable interfaces between components and external terminals. Commercial airline manufacturers began employing data bus standards more than 20 years ago. Industry is actively pursuing independent research and development (IR&D) programs to gain a technical understanding of bus applications and to prepare for future system procurements.
