Abstract : The Air Force and Navy are conducting a joint program (Aircraft Armament Interoperable Interface A2I2) to standardize interfaces between aircraft and stores. One product of this joint A2I2 program is a military standard for the Aircraft-Store Electrical Interconnection System (AEIS). This standard, released in July 1981 as MIL-STD-1760, defines the electrical interface between aircraft and stores. As mentioned in the MIL-STD-1760 foreword, the complete AEIS is comprised of electrical, logical, and physical elements. The present MIL-STD-1760 issue addresses only the electrical signal set element. This paper provides an overview on the background for the selected MIL-STD-1760 electrical signal set. Following this overview, application restrictions, application guidelines and various technical issues are discussed for each of the power, digital, high bandwidth and discrete signals of MIL-STD-1760. The discussion covers the electrical signal set characteristics presently defined in MIL-STD-1760 plus clarifications and more rigorous definitions of the electrical signal characteristics expected in a future revision to MIL-STD-1760.
