This paper offers an introduction to the envisioned digital backbone for US Army, Future Vertical Lift aircraft.
While the US Army Future Vertical Lift (FVL) programs have identified several key tenets that their airborne weapon systems need to ensure they maintain asymmetric advantage, there continues to be integration issues. MOSA standards are doing a good job of identifying electronics hardware and software architectures. However, they fall short on physical aircraft integration and consistency in architecture among aircraft systems.
