This document was prepared by the SAE AS-1B1 IMM Task Group to explain and document background information and design decisions made during the development of AS5726. This handbook is published separately to preserve information that is not required or provided in the AS5726 but may be important to system designers to ensure interoperability between the Micro Munition Host and Micro Munition. As a handbook, it cannot be invoked as a requirement in a contract.
The structure and numbering of this document mirrors that of AS5726 for the convenience of readers. Headings such as “Requirements” in this handbook should not be interpreted as invoking requirements.
This handbook provides information on the implementation of the Interface Standard, Interface for Micro Munitions (IMM), as defined in AS5726, into both current and future Micro Munition Hosts and Micro Munitions. This handbook provides guidance on design considerations, background information and rationale on AS5726 requirements, and other useful information for implementation of the IMM interface.
