Embedded Diagnostics and Prognostics for Future Vehicles 870397

RCA has developed a widely applicable Advanced Vehicle Electronics (AVE) architecture that while integrating electrical/electronic subsystems aboard future military vehicles also provides embedded diagnostics and prognostics. The architecture described in this paper is easily upgradable, features deep integration and a high degree of modularity, and provides the resources for integrated diagnostics and prognostics. These features give the architecture a degree of flexibility and technology robustness seldom found in military applications while providing for increased maintainability and operational availability of the vehicle through embedded diagnostics and prognostics. Although the requirements driving the architecture were developed from land combat vehicle applications, the architecture is equally applicable to any embedded system. This paper describes the AVE architecture and the integrated diagnostics and prognostics capabilities it provides.
