Abstract:

When the sub-routine RESET was originally programmed, it was designed for use with one or two specific vehicle series. Since that time several other series have been added to the Air Force satellite program. With each new series there has been a new data storage requirement, necessitating a new modification to RESET and a new Reset Tape format. At present RESET relies upon the vehicle number series to determine the format of the Reset Tapes. RESET will no longer be able to support all vehicles if it continues to choose its format from the vehicle number, which in turn may be chosen effectively at random. Section II of this document contains the proposed solution to the above stated problem, and Section III the format changes to existing programs necessary to accomplish it.
