Abstract:

During the operation of the Haystack Pointing System, variable amounts of system generated data are recorded on magnetic tape for purposes of later reconstruction of the pointing aspect of the experiment. The Print Program, a pseudo-celestial computation program, is the means whereby this system data, recorded during actual system operation or during a system planning run, is reconstituted in the form of print-outs for immediate inspection or as BCD magnetic tape equivalents of the print-outs for remote printing and for input to other programs. The Print Program provides a variety of operation options which can be altered dynamically.
