Scope:

This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) describes the Architecture Framework for Unmanned Systems (AFUS). AFUS comprises a Conceptual View, a Capabilities View, and an Interoperability View. The Conceptual View provides definitions and background for key terms and concepts used in the unmanned systems domain. The Capabilities View uses terms and concepts from the Conceptual View to describe capabilities of unmanned systems and of other entities in the unmanned systems domain. The Interoperability View provides guidance on how to design and develop systems in a way that supports interoperability.

Rationale:

This document supersedes the Revision A publication of AIR5665. As with the original, this document includes architectural descriptions intended to aid in standards development and subsequently to aid in the development of system architectures based on those standards. The architectural description is divided into three views: the Conceptual View describes the network of domain concepts and the relationships between them; the Capabilities View describes the capabilities commonly found across all types of unmanned systems platforms; and the Interoperability View describes the levels or types of interoperability required between platforms, payloads, and controllers.

This revision adds several new concepts and capabilities, and updates the cross-reference between the Capability View and the logical interface standards published by the SAE AS-4 Unmanned Systems Committee.
