Abstract : The standard interface unit (SIU) is used with the AF-EWES Threat Radar Simulator which selects the best ECM (electronic countermeasure) techniques to counter threats such as surface-to-air missiles (SAM's) and anti-aircraft artillery (AAA). The SIU comprises three modules: (1) Serial Bidirectional Party Line (SBPL) Monitor, (2) Acquisition Subsystem Interface Unit (ASSIU), and (3) Multiplex Terminal Unit (MTU). The SBPL Monitor accepts data in serial format and converts it to a parallel format for storage in one of two buffers. The data in storage is next sent to the ASSIU which also has a double buffer set-up for storage of data on a FIFO basis. The data is then transferred to the MTU for reformatting into MIL-STD-1553B, and shipped out serially.
