Modern military vehicles are increasingly complex systems that rely on vehicle electronics (vetronics) to provide essential capabilities. The electronic architecture of a military vehicle consists of distributed subsystems of varying degree of integrity that are integrated using the vetronics infrastructure. Many of these subsystems are rapidly updated to address Urgent Operational Requirements (UORs). The integration of these subsystems often provides capabilities greater than the sum of the individual subsystems. Therefore, the complex and integrated vetronics architecture is a critical element of these vehicles. However, the safety and reliability certification of the distributed and integrated capabilities is becoming increasingly difficult. The traditional approach to vehicle design and development lacks in managing the increased complexity of the integrated architecture and the complexity of the safety justification.
