Abstract:

An introduction to fundamentals of digital computers, data acquisition and communication, logical partitioning and optimization of sub-systems is given. A methodology of design is developed by philosophical discussion, detailed description of processes, and by practical examples of the application of basic principles to the problems of system and component design. The technique of specifying a requirement is discussed in detail as are the various steps required to satisfy it. The book provides a helpful background to the non-expert for the acquisition of complex avionic computer-based systems. Where practicable, an extensive bibliography for further reading is provided. This AGARDograph has been prepared at the request of the Avionics Panel of AGARD.
