Abstract : A description is given of the over-all system organization of the AN/GSQ-l6 (XW-2) Automatic Translation System. The data handling and processing requirements for the realization of an effective automatic language processing system, and the processing capabilities of the translation system, are briefly discussed. The complete instruction set together with the corresponding machine interpretation is followed by a detailed discussion of the machine instruction set constituting the unique table look-up lexical data processing capability. Both the single-pass and multipass operating modes of the translation system are explained. This includes a description of the Sentence Analyzer Memory and indexing arithmetic, the input text loading operation, the Photostore integral and conditional addressing philosophy and the Photosre search procedure, the Search Input State operations associated with the analysis and processing of source-language data, the Process State operations associated with the analysis and processing of intermediate data, and the output operations associated with the readout of the English translation and subsequent photocomposing procedure. There is also a description of various operational and experimental system provisions. The final section deals with procedures utilized to maximize the system reliability. (Author)
