Abstract : The complexity of tactical weapon delivery has been greatly increased by the advent of new weapons, the enormity of enemy air defenses and the awesome capability of new digital technology. However, careful assessment of the tactical requirements becomes even more important if a truly effective marriage of airframe, avionics and weapons is to be achieved. A review of a typical tactical mission requirement battlefield interdiction establishes a base for derivation of functional requirements on which an integrated attack system architecture can be designed. The result is a need for a multi-sensor, multi-mode capability functionally integrated to achieve the flexibility required by the mission. (Author)
