Abstract
AMHERST SYSTEMS PROPOSES TO INTERFACE SIMNET TO THE INTEGRATED TEST BED (ITB) FACILITY COCKPIT SIMULATOR AT THE AVIONICS LABORATORY AT WRIGHT LABORATORIES, WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB. THE AVIONICS LABORATORY IS THE AIR FORCE RESEARCH LABORATORY FOR ADVANCED AVIONICS CONCEPTS, AND IT STRIVES FOR THE CAPABILITY TO TEST SYSTEMS FROM SOFTWARE CONCEPT THROUGH PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT. THE ITB COCKPIT IS AN ENGINEERING SIMULATOR USED TO EVALUATE AVIONICS SYSTEMS AND CONCEPTS. CONNECTION TO SIMNET WILL ALLOW THE AVIONICS LABORATORY TO PERFORM EVALUATIONS IN MULTIPLE-MANNED ENVIRONMENTS. THE INTERFACE BETWEEN SIMNET AND THE ITB COCKPIT SIMULATOR WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FRONT-END PROCESSOR (FP). THE FP IS BASED ON A VME ARCHITECTURE, AND IS MINIMALLY INVASIVE TO THE ITB COCKPIT SIMULATOR. IT WILL PERFORM COMMUNICAITON, DATA TRANSLATION, AND OTHER RELATED FUNCTIONS TO SUPPORT THE CONNECTION WITH SIMNET. THE FP IS A NOVEL APPLICAITON OF STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY TO HELP SOLVE THE PRACTICAL PROBLEMS OF THE SYTEMS INTEGRATION. AMHERST SYSTEMS IS IDEALLY SUITED TO PERFORM THIS WORK BECAUSE OF ITS EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN REALTIME SYTEMS, VME ARCHITECTURES AND SYSTEMS INTEGRATION. AMHERST SYSTEMS IS FAMILIAR WITH THE ITB THROUGH ITS WORK AT WRIGHT LABORATORIES. THIS PROPOSAL IS SUBMITTED WITH THE APPROVAL AND SUPPORT OF WL/AAAS-2, THE SYSTEM AVIONICS DIVISION OF THE AVIONICS LABORATORY.
