Leveraging ARINC 818 for military avionics and sensor applications - Podcast

April 28, 2021

The ARINC 818 digital video interface and protocol standard is used throughout commercial and military cockpits for avionics display applications. As military video systems continue to increase in complexity in and out of the cockpit, for example in intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) sensor systems, the demand for ARINC 818 solutions is growing. In this podcast, Tim Keller, Chief Operations Officer at Great River Technology discusses defines what ARINC 818 is, discusses common misconceptions about the standard, and describes its growing use in sensor applications and in training and simulation applications. Keller also details new ARINC 818 training for engineers and explores how the standard could potentially work within the Sensor Open Systems Architecture Technical Standard.

ARINC 818 tackles tough sensor fusion issues - Story

March 20, 2009
Sensor fusion systems continue to proliferate in military applications like surveillance, target tracking, and missile defense, but they bring their share of system-level challenges such as sensor synchronization, cabling weight, distance restrictions, and EMI. The authors discuss how ARINC 818 (Avionics Digital Video Bus) can be used as a flexible sensor interface to solve these system-level issues. Additionally, a bidirectional ARINC 818 system architecture scheme for time multiplexing multiple sensors onto a single fiber and implementing a return-path for sensor command and control is described.
