Abstract:

This report presents the results of a study to configure an advanced multiprocessor for an avionics system. An advanced strategic bomber avionics system was selected as representative of an advanced avionics system application and computational requirements for this system were defined. The prototype laboratory version of an advanced multiprocessor developed by Burroughs Corporation under Air Force Avionics Laboratory sponsorship was examined and applied to the avionics system. It was found that the Burroughs multiprocessor offers a very flexible and adaptable design. Several improvements were noted to improve its performance and several design modifications were noted which are required in order to apply the design to the avionics system. The resultant configuration showed that mechanization of the computer system, using state-of- the-art technology, for an advanced strategic bomber avionics system is feasible with the Burroughs multiprocessor concept. This report is also being published as Autonetics internal report C72-812201.
