Vehicle Electronics (Vetronics) Implications for Vehicle Diagnostics 830370
The problem of performing vehicle diagnostics during the past 10 years has grown in magnitude and has become even more difficult and sophisticated for Army Combat vehicles. Army combat vehicles have increased greatly in capability largely through the use of the ever expanding electronic and microcomputer technology. Through proper exploitation of the same technology, more efficient integration of the vehicle subsystems can be achieved to make possible built-in diagnostics. Built-in diagnostics must be part of the system design to provide a “fix forward” capability in the highly mobile and lethal battlefield of the future.
