As aircraft turbine engine technologies have evolved, a need has emerged to move from legacy monolithic control systems to a distributed paradigm. This thesis is based upon research performed to develop a distributed control architecture that is secure and robust against extreme environmental conditions. Background, the proposed architecture, design of a network smart node, and experimental testing of a high-temperature microprocessor are presented.
