OPAL-RT provides an MIL-STD-1553 driver for serial communication of data between the simulator and all devices in a typical 1553 bus network. The solution is based on a GE/Abaco QPCX-1533 PCI board and can be configured to interface with and access all functionalities, for any type of device:
MIL-STD-1553 is a military standard widely used in avionic systems. It defines the mechanical, electrical, and functional characteristics of a serial data bus. The standard has become one of the basic tools being used today by the Department of Defence for weapon systems integration. Some of the key MIL-STD-1553 elements are the bus controller (BC), the embedded remote terminal (RT), which is a sensor or subsystem that provides its own internal 1553 interface, and the stand-alone bus monitor (BM).
