This paper presents a Master/Slave redundancy mechanism for the airborne Integrated Modular Radio to improve the reliability of the joint radio resource management (JRRM) system. The proposed mechanism adopts keep-alive heart beat messages and real time information synchronization to ensure a smooth switchover in the event of a platform failure. To enhance the scalability and decoupling of the system, the proposed hot swap solution makes the JRRM switchover transparent to both the higher layers and the lower layers. The experiment results and the performance obtained from the test-bed has proved the validity of the solution.
