MIL STD 1553 Data Diode: VEGAS-S


NuWaves offers the VEGAS-S data diode created to allow the isolation of the main MIL-STD-1553 avionics bus from bus monitors or systems under test for enhanced safety of flight. The control of the data flow over the MIL-STD-1553 bus provides true risk reduction to the aircraft’s avionics bus for early software upgrades to existing bus monitoring systems, along with reducing the risk to the aircraft’s avionics bus for early bus monitor integration.

With no microcontroller or microprocessor utilized in the design, Vegas-S is a plug and play device that cannot be exploited by cyber-attacks. It supports two independent MIL-STD-1553 channels and comes in a 7 in3 / 0.5 lbs. package offering 40 mA at 28 VDC.
