This standard defines implementation requirements for the electrical interface between:
a. aircraft carried miniature store carriage systems and miniature stores
b. aircraft parent carriage and miniature stores
c. surface based launch systems and miniature stores
The interface provides a common interfacing capability for the initialization and employment of smart miniature munitions and other miniature stores from the host systems. Physical, electrical, and logical (functional) aspects of the interface are addressed.
This standard was developed by SAE International. It defines implementation requirements for the electrical interface between platforms and miniature stores, and/or miniature store launch/carriage systems and miniature stores. This document was revised to incorporate editorial and technical comments received and coordinated by SAE AS-1B2 Aircraft/Store Interface Standards User Group. The changes include items that came out of the validation document development effort and the official release of the connector insert in MIL-STD-1560.
