Abstract : Major General Welch USAF, Asst. Deputy Chief of Staff for Research, Development and Acquisition, has asked the Electronic Industries Association for policy level participation in the Air Force's avionics standards program. This paper reports on the initial step of the response of industry. It analyzes a survey made under the sponsorship of the EIA. Defense industry managers and senior engineers experienced in the development and production of mission-critical avionics and software were questioned about their experiences and opinions concerning the Air Force standards for J-73 (JOVIAL), ADA, 1553 Data Bus, and 1750 Instruction Set Architecture. The responses are cross-correlated with experience levels and nature of the respondent's field of expertise. Results are presented as a summary of current attitudes which can serve as data base for focusing issues for further discussion with industry. (Author)
