Electronic network-centric devices are being widely used in military vehicles. The environments they operate are demanding and performance delivery is crucial under harsh conditions. Dictated by application needs, customised levels of configurability control and analysis are essential. The objectives of the work presented in this paper are to provide intelligent means of connectivity for integrating diverse network technologies, and tools for configuring and monitoring military vehicle electronic systems. Our investigation introduces the use of smart bridges that allow access to custom tools for reconfiguration and network information from the system. The target is to enhance the means of configuring these bridges, and to acquire customised diagnostics that potentially provide enhanced performance solutions. Experimental investigations utilizing MilCAN and Ethernet are being conducted, using a variety of different network topologies and configuration sets, to interconnect multiple MilCAN segments over an Ethernet backbone.
