Abstract : One of the objectives of the USAF Digital Integrating Subsystems (DIS) project is to establish standards for digitally interfacing various guidance options, seekers, autopilots, etc., in future air-to-air and air-to-surface tactical weapons. Since a DIS missiles is digital in nature, time delays and related phase lags are present which affect system stability. This study is an attempt to address the data latency/stability problem.
