MIL BUS 1553: Robust Tech for Aerospace Applications

Executive Summary

MIL-STD-1553 is a serial data bus defined by the US Department of Defence that specifies the mechanical, electrical, and functional aspects of the technology. Originally designed for use in military avionics, it has been used for the past thirty years in spacecraft onboard data handling subsystems in both military and civilian settings. A data bus allows for the exchange of data between different systems, much like a Local Area Network (LAN) in the personal computer industry
