HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE MODULARITY FOR SHIPBOARD SYSTEMS

Multi-hierarchical information processing and control systems offer high reliability and expandability when modularity of software and hardware are coincident. The multi-hierarchical architecture permits autonomous major subsystem operation provided that Hardware/Software modules are restricted to designated subsystem functions. Developments in microprocessing have made the multi-hierarchical approach not only feasible but economically attractive. A fully integrated Fleet Ballistic Missile <FBM> Submarine Combat System is presented as illustration.
