This paper deals with the conceptual design of an integrated multimodal system which can offer a ‘plug and play’ capability. It deals with the design constraints of such systems: the complexity and specificity of the front end electronics for each modality; the need for front end data pre-processing and packing; the need to integrate the data to allow data fusion; and finally the features to enable successful data fusion and interpretation. This paper, Part 1, focuses upon the composite systems engineering and integrated hardware. A further paper, Part 2, deals with the data processing and system software design.
