This standard only defines interconnect, electrical and logical (functional) requirements for the interface between a Micro Munition and the Host. The physical and mechanical interface between the Micro Munition and Host is undefined. Individual programs will define the relevant requirements for physical and mechanical interfaces in the Interface Control Document (ICD) or system specifications. It is acknowledged that this does not guarantee full interoperability of Interface for Micro Munitions (IMM) interfaces until further standardization is achieved.
This standard was developed by SAE International. It defines implementation requirements for the electrical interface between Hosts and Micro Munitions. The intent of this standard is to minimize proliferation of electrical interfaces between Micro Munitions and associated Hosts and thereby promote interoperability of Micro Munitions across different programs and services.
