Logistics Systems

LOG501A -- Avionics Open System Architecture

DESCRIPTION: An avionics open system architecture incorporates open non-proprietary hardware and software systems, modular integrated hardware clusters connected by commercial high speed data buses, commercial hardware and software adhering to widely accepted standards, modular reusable higher order software, and a commercial support environment. An integrated display/ core processing function is included. The system implementation minimizes Group A changes and applies Form, Fit, Function Interfaces (F3I). The implementation allows for an evolutionary upgrade to a mature open system.

 

LOG501B -- Integrated Modular Avionics

DESCRIPTION: Integration of passive RF avionics functions can achieve significant improvements in LCC, reliability and maintainability. The concept utilizes MMIC, MMC, and ASIC capabilities to implement modular plug-in assemblies. The assemblies, which can be inserted into avionics racks, will functionally provide receiver operations that support data link, radar, EW, IFF, etc. capabilities. The designs utilize standard interfaces and can be electronically reconfigured to take on a new function or take over a function lost by failure. Modules are planned for SEM E implementation and can be conduction cooled.

 

 

LOG501C -- Common Module/Open System Architecture

DESCRIPTION: The application of an Open System/Common Module Computing site wherein Processors, Memory and I/O cards can be inserted into a semi-intelligent back-plane with appropriate copper and glass buses, neatly addresses the - Major Advantages:

1. Facilitate sensor, weapons and mission subsystem updates

2. Allows insertion of advanced technology processors, memory

and I/O as a function of time.

3. Capable of parallel processing.

4. Common modules support lower Maintenance &

Supportability costs

 

LOG503 -- Multi-Funcitional, multi-Platform Deployable Support Equipment (Mass)

DESCRIPTION: Support equipment requirements for operational deployments place a heavy burden on deployment scenarios. This concept involves the evaluation of hi-mobility drivers for redesign into a single multifunctional unit for use on a number of aircraft. Equipment will be designed as collapsible to a fraction of their current size and weight, to include both powered and non-power support equipment.
