Vetronics Architecture with in vehicle Networking
The effectiveness of combat and combat support vehicles platforms can be improved significantly by incorporating Vetronics concept at the platform design stage itself which allows on-board systems to be interconnected as networks and enables them not only to share the information with-in the platform but also with the neighbouring platforms. The Vetronics concept not only optimises the on-board computing resources and other electronic sub-systems, also aids in easier platform integration. The Vetronics architecture with in-vehicle networking can be conceived and optimised based for vehicle type, requirement of types of systems envisaged for integration and having a balance between standard and customised components. The conceptual architecture proposed in this paper brings out the benefits offered by Vetronics approach for integration of on-board sub-systems thereby enhancing the platform effectiveness and Battlefield Management System for in-service and futuristic platforms considering the space as one of the major constraints. The proposed concept is adaptable, flexible and scalable enabling integration of the various electronic sub-systems.
