Combat vehicles have traditionally been designed to provide increased capabilities in response to a real or projected threat. These capabilities always fell into the areas of shoot, move, communicate, and survive. Maintainability, Manprint, and Supportability were addressed secondary. An integrated electronic architecture is being developed to improve Operation and Support costs of combat vehicles. The architecture is comprised of standard hardware and software modules that are designed and fabricated in accordance with form, fit and function specifications. By standardizing the hardware and software interfaces the development process will be accelerated while allowing interchangeability of both hardware and software between weapon systems.
