The VICTORY specification 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.
Simplifying System Upgrades and Modifications, While Reducing Complexity
Modern efforts like the U.S. Army's VICTORY (Vehicle Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability) initiative and the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence (MOD) Generic Vehicle Architecture (GVA) are paving the way for a modern battlefield where system upgrades and modifications are quicker and less expensive.
We’ve engineered our VICTORY-ready solutions to optimize SWaP, flexibility, and modularity in ground vehicle systems while ensuring scalability and interoperability with legacy systems.

An Open Standard Interface for Physical and Logical Interfaces Between System and C5ISR/EW Components
VICTORY defines a framework for integration that includes a prescribed architecture, a standard specification, and reference designs. The architecture consists of 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.
