Abstract:

The Multi-Mode Sonar Console display-system consists of one to seven Multi-Mode Sonar Consoles MMSCs and a single Passive Data Memory Unit PDMU. The MMSC display system provides versatile display capability for computer-aided sonar systems. The MMSCs and PDMU will interface with either the militarized UNIVAC CP-642BUSQ-20B or the UNIVAC 1230 computer. The MMSC display system does not interface directly with the sonar sensor sub-system. All active and passive sonar data are assembled, formatted, and transmitted to the MMSC display-system by the computer. The design of the MMSCs will allow seven consoles or less to time-share a single, fast-interface, inputoutput channel of the computer. The PDMU operates on its own fast interface channel.
