MIL-STD-1397 standard was issued by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to define "the requirements for the physical, functional and electrical characteristics of a standard I/O data interface for digital data." The MIL-STD-1397 classification types A, B and D apply specifically to the Naval Tactical Data System (NTDS).

Types[edit]

MIL-STD-1397 defines several 'Types' (A to K) [1]

  • Type A (NTDS Slow)- Parallel data transfer of up to 41667 words per second on one cable.
  • Type B (NTDS Fast) - Parallel data transfer of up to 250000 words per second on one cable.
  • Type C (ANEW) - Parallel data transfer of up to 41667 words per second on one cable.
  • Type D (NTDS Serial) - Asynchronous serial data transfer using 10 Mbit/s data rate.
  • Type E (NATO Serial) - Asynchronous serial data transfer at 10Mbit/s, with 300000 words/sec in burst mode, or 175000 words/sec in single transfer mode. Type E is derived from STANAG 4153. Type E uses Bi-Phase Modulation [Manchester II phase encoding]. The impedance is 50 ohms + 5 ohms, a 50 ohm Triaxial cable is defined [center conductor is the signal, the other two are shields]. MIL-C-17/134 cable is used for lengths up to 120 meters, MIL-C-17/135 is used for cable lengths up to 300 meters. The connectors are defined by MIL-C-49142 /01 and /02.
  • Type F - MIL-STD-1553 aircraft Manchester Byphase multiplex serial bus, 1 Mbit/s data rate.
  • Type G (RS-449 compatible with RS-232) - uses EIA449 / EIA232 implementation.
  • Type H (High Speed) - Parallel data transfer of up to 500,000 words per second on one cable.
  • Type I - Not specified.
  • Type J - Optical version[1]
  • Type K (SCSI) - Based on SCSI-2.[1][2]

Mechanical[edit]

Type D uses BNC coaxial connectors.[3] Type E uses TNC triaxial connectors.

Electrical Signalling[edit]

  • Type A - Binary voltage levels of 0 VDC (logic 1) and -15 VDC (logic 0)
  • Type B - Binary voltage levels of 0 VDC (logic 1) and -3 VDC (logic 0)
  • Type C - Binary voltage levels of 0 VDC (logic 1) and +3.5 VDC (logic 0) [1]
  • Type D - Bipolar +/- 3.25 VDC nominal
  • Type E - Bipolar +/- 600mv
  • Type F -
  • Type G -
  • Type H -
  • Type I - Not specified.
  • Type J -
