Abstract:
Presented in this thesis is the Airborne Countermeasures Ejection and/or Release (ALE)-XX Cockpit Control Unit (CCU) Countermeasures Dispensing System Network Controller (CMDSNC) design. ALE-XX CCU CMDSNC was designed as part of the total ALE-XX system to replace the problematic ALE-40. Fiber optic technology is incorporated into ALE-XX as the communication medium to eliminate Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). ALE-XX CMDSNC uses a star network to solve system operation failures from the existing daisy-chain topology. A comprehensive Built-In-Test (BIT) allows fault diagnose and isolation of hardware problems reported on the CCU Visual Display. Digital electronics replace the electro-mechanical devices, lowers the number of Line Replaceable Units (LRUs), and raises the Mean-Time-Between-Failures (MTBF). The information contained herein could be used as a design aid for future CMDSNCs or other related instrumentation.
