   Did you try DDC? I've gotten several manuals from their site.

   They're probably not much use to you. The 1553 bus is used on aircraft
(and spacecraft?) to let the different systems talk to eadh other. I've
never heard of them being used elsewhere except for test stations for
testing the avionics systems. I have some 1553 cards for the PCs and I got
the hard drive with SW from one of the PCs but I've never tried to do
anything with them. The one HD that I have came from a test station used to
develope SW for the Lantirn system (see F-15 for more info). It's pretty
interesting because it has some simulations on that were used for testing
the Lantirn pods.
