Abstract : A digital computer based system for managing a plurality of redundant signal processing equipment in a complex avionics system provides fast reconfiguration of the signal processing equipment to add, delete, or modify signal processing functions. A single user may thereby control a very large number of signal processing functions for communication, navigation, and identification from a single input/output device. The system utilizes a data base thereby making additions or deletions of equipment easily achievable. (Patents)
