A Blue Print for the Future Electronic Warfare Suite Development
Mastering increasing complexity of electronic warfare (EW) airborne equipment systems needs new architectural concepts mainly based on modular design, generic resources and reliable communication buses. Less is more architectural concept replaces separate EW line replaceable units with fewer centralized processing units. This approach leads to a robust architecture for the next generation EW suite development in a unified fashion and thereby promising significant weight reduction and maintenance savings. In general, this approach is represented by a blanket term called integrated modular avionics (IMA). IMA architecture based EW suite development concentrates with the main goals of IMA such as technology transparency, resource sharing, incremental qualification, reduced maintenance cost, and so on.
