AbstractAs MIL-STD-1553 Multiplex Data Bus usage proliferates, the ability to remotely monitor bus traffic has become important. Common applications include flight testing of missiles and aircraft, and the field maintenance of vehicles. Due to the high data rate and asynchronous characteristics of the 1553 Data Bus, special problems exist in the acquisition and analysis of 1553 bus traffic. The acquisition of the complete bus traffic is especially important during system testing and diagnostic operations. Several approaches are being utilized today to transmit 1553 bus traffic. The first approach is an extension of the PCM technique in which all of the bus traffic, during a specific time window, is buffered and then output in a PCM style format. This has the advantage of being synchronous, but a significant amount of bus information is lost, primarily the protocol and bus timing. An alternative approach is to transmit raw unbuffered bus traffic. Bus timing and protocol are retained, but the telemetry signal is asynchronous. A third approach, developed by Loral Data Systems in conjunction with Loral Instrumentation, is a 1553 Data Acquisition System that retains bus timing and protocol and synchronizes the signal to a common clock.
