Paper Abstract

Military aircraft being considered to fill the future Airborne Tactical Reconnaissance mission are equipped with the MIL-STD-1553 Digital Multiplex Bus. How is this bus different from previous interfaces? Does the bus enhance or complicate the interface of sensors to aircraft via the Sensor Control/Data Display Set (SC/DDS)? Dedicated reconnaissance aircraft like the RF-4, are fewer and far between; most new, single seat air-craft in dual role missions, use reconnaissance pallets or pods while retaining major fighter capabilities. Can the added function of sensor control and monitoring for a single pilot/controller be implemented over the bus? Which functions should be performed in the Mission Computer and which should be contained in the Remote Terminal (RT) known as the SC/DDS? Discussed herein are answers to these questions plus options and capabilities for future airborne reconnaissance design.
