Abstract : The objective of the Architecture/Environment Evaluation project was to determine the ideal microprocessor and the Ada software environment for embedded guidance, navigation, and control processing for tactical missiles. Off-the-shelf microprocessors and compilers were evaluated using the Optimum Guidance Law Implementation (OGLI) benchmarks. The processors included the MIPS R3000, Sun SPARC, Motorola 88000, IBM System/6000, TI TMS320C30, INMOS transputer T800, Intel 80386, and the DEC MicroVAX 11. This research also included an experiment implementing OGLI on a parallel computer (transputer) to improve performance.
