This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) will examine network aspects of open and shorted stubs, line reflections and bus loading due to network changes. Single network level is assumed, that is, no carriage store hierarchical levels. However, two passive network coupling variants called "branched bus" and "branched stub" will be introduced that possibly could be used in a stores management network. This report assumes familiarity with MIL STD 1553B.
This document has been determined to contain basic and stable technology which is not dynamic in nature.
