Abstract:

A shipboard computer facility to support oceanographic research at NRL has been designed and is currently being developed. This shipboard computer system consists of dual, identical minicomputers one computer is used for the real-time acquisition of oceanographic data and navigation, and the second computer is used for data processing, general purpose computing, and spectrum analysis using a hardware fast Fourier analyzer. Program and data storage on each computer is accomplished by a random access disc and dual magnetic tape units.
