AN OPEN STANDARD FOR PHYSICAL AND LOGICAL INTERFACES BETWEEN SYSTEM AND C5ISR/EW COMPONENTS
What is Vehicle Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability (VICTORY)?
The VICTORY specification was officially kicked off in 2010 by the U.S. Army and a consortium of defense and industry participants, including Curtiss-Wright. It promotes the use of open standard physical and logical interfaces between LRU subsystems on C5ISR (formerly C4ISR) and electronic warfare (EW) combat vehicles, mitigating the problems created by the "bolt-on" approach to fielding equipment on military vehicles.
VICTORY defines a framework for integration that includes a prescribed architecture, a standard specification, and reference designs. The architecture includes definitions of common terminology, systems, components, and interfaces, while the specification provides technical specifications for the systems, components, and interfaces identified in the architecture.
The VICTORY technical approach includes a data bus-centric design, sharable hardware components, open standard physical and logical interfaces, a shared set of data bus services, and shared hardware and software information assurance (IA) components. The shared hardware components enable the deployment of software additions without adding additional hardware. The standard physical and logical interfaces enable system and C5ISR/EW components to communicate with each other. The shared hardware and software IA components allow systems integrators to build security designs to protect and control access to information.
