This trade study was conducted to recommend a programming language for DCDRS program preparation. The study addresses the separable functional requirements for the Drone Control Facility DCF, with its related ground components, and the RPV, with the related airborne applications. For the DCF, a high order language JOVIAL, J-3, AFM 100-24 was selected. An assembly level language, ULTRA UNIVAC was selected for RPV programming. To arrive at the two final language selections, a high order language and was first considered as to its suitability for both DCF and RPV specific languages were then traded off for each of the two applications.
