NetAcquire MIL-STD-1553 to Ethernet Data Conversion

NetAcquire systems offer a real-time solution that support bi-directional conversion of MIL-STD-1553 data bus and an Ethernet network. The NetAcquire system can perform as any of a Bus Monitor (BM), Bus Controller (BC), one or more Remote Terminals (RT), or any combination of these. The full processing and decommutation capabilities of the NetAcquire product are available for analyzing and generating 1553 traffic, as well as data archiving and playback.

  • Simultaneously share and display 1553 data across multiple desktop computers
  • Simulate a Bus Controller to test your Remote Terminal product
  • Simulate one or more RTs to test your Bus Controller product
  • Test your full system operation even though one or more RTs is still in development by having the NetAcquire unit stand in for the missing RTs
  • Verify/Validate correct operation of your existing system by monitoring all 1553 traffic
  • Analyze message traffic off-line from archived messages
  • Monitor and communicate on multiple buses to test redundancy
  • Easily configure NetAcquire system operation from any Web browser to change test scenarios quickly
  • View 1553 bus operations away from a noisy lab via the network

Bus Monitor Features

  • Monitors all bus traffic
  • Selectively filters traffic for capture of most interesting data
  • Filters by RT address, RT sub-address, broadcast, Mode-Code commands, direction, traffic on either or both bus A and B.

  • Limits capture to only messages with errors
  • Timestamps all data
  • Formats in accordance with IRIG 106-2001 Chapter 8 MIL-STD-1553 Acquisition Formatting Standard

 Bus Controller Features

  • Generates sequences of periodic messages in real-time
  • BC-to-RT, RT-to-BC, and RT-to-RT message transfer operations
  • Generates broadcast messages
  • Programmable period of message transfers synchronized to internal clock, IRIG clock, Network Time Protocol (NTP) source
  • Programmable bus-to-use, Remote Terminal address, sub-address, and data contents
  • Records success/failure status of each transfer
  • Sends on-demand message from remote PC via Ethernet to 1553 bus
  • Supports Mode-Code messages to change RT operational state

Remote Terminal Features

  • Supports maximum number of Remote Terminals on bus

  • Supports all sub-addresses for each RT

  • Data transfers from BC routable to Data Flow Engine which can parse/decommutate data and Publish individual fields to network

  • Preset-able arrays of data for RT to BC messages
