Architecture Framework for Unmanned Systems
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) describes the Architecture Framework for Unmanned Systems (AFUS). AFUS comprises a Conceptual View, a Capabilities View, and an Interoperability View. The Conceptual View provides definitions and background for key terms and concepts used in the unmanned systems domain. The Capabilities View uses terms and concepts from the Conceptual View to describe capabilities of unmanned systems and of other entities in the unmanned systems domain. The Interoperability View provides guidance on how to design and develop systems in a way that supports interoperability.
The AIR5665 "AFUS" revision will address the following issues: (1) clean-up and enhancements based on comments made late in the previous development cycle; (2) rewrite Section 6 to define levels of interoperability; (3) addition of an appendix to cross-reference between AFUS capabilities and AS-4 published service definitions.
