Abstract : Modern fighter aircraft carry, beside various types of bombs, more and more intelligent weapons. In this context the development of a Stores and Missile Management System has to take into account the requirement from the operational/tactical considerations as well as the optimal usage of advanced electronic equipment together with a growth and adaption capability in both areas. On the basis of existing weapon delivery systems this paper discusses some possible trends in weapon development (i.e. more intelligent fire-and-forget missiles) and weapon control systems development (i.e. Mil-Bus 1552 B, programmable weapon management computer) together with the integration problems of a complete aircraft weapon delivery system from the planning stage via equipment and subsystem development to rig and on-aircraft testing up to first flight test experiences.
