Abstract : This paper addresses the problems of providing specifications for system components of the highly integrated avionic systems of the future. The problems are discussed in the context of the avionic systems of a Future Maritime Reconnaissance Aircraft (FMRA). The need and extent of the integration of the avionic systems are discussed, as are the consequences for system definition and specification. Potential techniques for addressing these problems are reviewed. These are brought together to describe an approach which could provide the tools required. The implication of this approach for vendors and integrators is then addressed. NATO Furnished. (rh)
