In view of advantages and disadvantages analysis of software communication architecture (SCA), general open architecture (GOA) and avionics software system structure (ARINC653), a new type of integrated system software architecture which is suitable for launch vehicle was designed in this paper. According to the characteristics of the launch vehicle software, the new software system architecture including four layers, such as resource service layer, operating system layer, middleware layer, and application layer. Each layer is independent to each other, and all layers can integrate the functions of the traditional launch vehicle software system. The new software system architecture can support flexible functional expansion and tailoring, which enables it to quickly adapt to the requirements of different types of launch vehicles, and greatly reduce the repetitive design work.
