Abstract : The MIL-STD-1553 interface provides a reliable, high speed data interchange protocol for electronic systems. A typical 1553 bus architecture for avionics. A central processor, or mission computer, uses multiple independent 1553 channels, in this case two channels, each of which is dual redundant. Typical functions of the MC are: (1) acting as the bus controller (BC) for all 1553 channels; (2) integrating data from the various sensors to calculate navigation and fire control solutions; and (3) generating display information for the pilot.
