This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) defines a Generic Aircraft-Store Interface Framework (GASIF). This is a common framework for modeling and specifiying aircraft-store logical interfaces. GASIF complies with the OSI Basic Reference Model (ITU-T Rec. X.200 / ISO/IEC 7498-1) in that it describes operations and mechanisms which are assignable to layers as specified in the OSI Basic Reference Model.
This AIR provides a mapping of the Interface Standard for Aircraft-store Electrical Interconnection System (AEIS), MIL-STD- 1760, in Appendix C.
The purpose of GASIF is to foster greater interoperability between aircraft and stores through standards coordination and common approaches to aircraft-store interface and control documents (ICD).
The field of application for GASIF is military aircraft/store avionics, where a "store" is a device (such as an air-launched weapon) that when loaded on an aircraft allows it to perform a specific mission.
