Abstract:

Hybrid computer programs were developed to accept data in analog form and simultaneously to perform selected analysis and reduction procedures in real time, the results appearing as continuous analog outputs. Analog circuits with parallel logic removed interference spikes from the original data, generated a coarsely-quantized power density spectrum, and formed a continuous record of the correlation coefficient of two signals. Hybrid programs calculated, and repetitively outputed in analog form, the amplitude probability density and the auto- or crosscorrelation functions a rapid-display program continuously outputed the peak value of the crosscorrelation and the time at which the peak occurred. Initial data conditioning and final display utilized analog circuits, but the calculation was performed on a digital computer linked by a-d and d-a converters and control circuits. An initial study of hybrid techniques for simulating the flight of sounding rockets and reconstructing aspect data was performed. Author
