Abstract : The Integrated Communication Navigation and Identification Avionics (ICNIA) project is a system design and validation effort within service laboratories; the system includes the full suite of CNI functions, and is an alternative to a collection of independent C, N, and I system black boxes. The concept is that of a family of modules; front end, preprocessor, signal processor, data processor, clock, COMSEC/TRANSEC, etc. which can be tailored to an individual aircraft type and mission, implying that there could be unique LRUs for each aircraft type. This presents a logistically intolerable situation unless the LRUs, fleetwide, consist almost entirely of standard SRUs of relatively few types across the fleet; standardization at the module, subassembly, or SRU level is required. This paper discusses the system approach to CNI implementation in 1990s procurement, current standards already adopted in the program, and the future standards which appear to be necessary for fullest benefit from the ICNIA concept.
