Abstract : This report recommends a microprocessor suitable for use in all future smart weapons. To select such a microprocessor, a general knowledge of smart weapons is presented first. For a further understanding of smart weapons, the operation of a specific system, STAFF, is described. The specifications of the desired universal microprocessor are then enumerated. The currently available microprocessors are studied, compiled, and compared. Texas Instruments TMS32OC8O is recommended as the universal microprocessor for future smart weapons.
