With no stubs attached, the main bus looks like an infinite length transmission line with no disturbing reflections.

Direct coupled stubs provide no DC isolation or common mode rejection for the terminal external to its subsystem. Stubs for RTs, the BC, or BMs, are generally connected to the bus through coupling boxes, which may provide a single or multiple stub connections.

Practically each word could be considered as a bit word: A smaller conductor attenuates the signal more than a larger conductor.

There is provision to designate a new bus control computer in the event of a failure by the current master controller. More than one condition may be true at the same time. In the example, the Response Time is 8.

In a direct coupled stub, the length of stub cable should not exceed 1 foot, but again this may be exceeded if installation requirements dictate. The following paragraphs will highlight the main points of the standard that the design or system engineer needs to know for a successful integration. An application or function on the subsystem behind the receiving RT interface may then access the data.


The 16 bits comprising each word are transmitted using Manchester codewhere each bit is transmitted as a 0. It can be expected that when the direct coupled stub length exceeds 1.

Integrated Terminals

The RT Production Test Plan is a simplified subset of the validation test plan and is intended for production testing of Remote Terminals. Messages consist of one or more bit words command, data, or status. For example, in a tracked vehicle, a Remote Terminal might acquire data from an inertial navigational subsystem, and send that data over a data bus to another Remote Terminal, for display on a crew instrument.

Some bits are reserved. The use of transformer coupled stubs also provides improved protection for terminals against lightning strikes.

Ideally, a BM captures and records all messages sent over the data bus. Whilst RTs cannot start a transfer directly on their own, the standard does include a method for when an RT needs to transmit data that is not automatically scheduled by the Bus Controller. Lower-priority functions are polled less frequently. The digital conversion is done at the sensor, and a digital signal is sent to the computer via a dual redundant shielded twisted 15533b pair.

The purpose of electrical termination is to minimize the effects of signal reflections that can cause waveform distortion. An application or function in the subsystem behind the RT interface e.

At the same time, however, the impedance must be kept low so that adequate signal power will be delivered to the receiving end. Simpler examples of Remote Terminals might be interfaces that switch on the headlights, the landing lights, or the annunciators in an aircraft. MIL-STD is a commercial standard that describes a one megabit serial network physical layer layer one: So I recommended that we go to a timeshared digital multiplex data bus concept. Typical propagation delay for a B cable is 1.


This may be to schedule an acyclic transfer either immediately or at the end of the current minor cycle. RTs with higher-priority functions for example, those operating the aircraft control surfaces are polled more frequently.


For example, the RT address contained in the Command Word has a value of 0x3 in range 153b 0 to The image below exemplifies many of the protocol and physical layer concepts explained above.

Its primary role is to monitor and record bus transactions, without interfering with the operation of the Bus Controller or the RTs. Isolation is even more critical in new composite aircraft where the skin of the aircraft no long provides an inherent Faraday shield as was the case with aluminum skinned aircraft. Retrieved 14 November The bit rate is 1. These transfers are often called acyclic transfers as they are outside the structure used by the cyclic executive. All transmissions onto the data bus are accessible to the BC and all connected RTs.
