AbstractThe Embedded Computer System Support Improvement Program, or ESIP, was begun by the U.S. Air Force in 1983 to find new cost effective ways of integrating, testing and maintaining the computers embedded in military airborne, spaceborne, and ground electronic systems. A major initiative of this program is the Extendable Integration Support Environment (EISE). The EISE project involves design and development of a high speed network-based hardware and software integration and test environment. The ongoing work is being done jointly by U.S. Air Force civilian engineers at McClellan Air Force Base and TRW in Sacramento, California, in support of embedded avionics computers in the A-10 aircraft. The prototype design will be used to test and integrate various other aircraft and space systems. The author was the EISE project lead system engineer from July 1986 through January 1988.
