Abstract:

This thesis lists the results of a follow-on study of Phase II of the Space Programming Language Machine SPLM Architecture Study AD-A002 798. In this follow-on study, the Clock Level Simulator CLS was translated to JOVIALJ73 and improvements were made to decrease execution times and memory requirements of the simulator. This work was accomplished using the DEC-10 system of the AF Avionics Lab. at Wright-Patterson AFB. CLS simulates the direct execution of SPLML Space Programming Language Machine Language on an SPLM. SPLML is a higher order language that was developed especially for avionic applications. CLS was developed as a design tool where the memory word size, memory address size, etc. are design parameters which represents a specific configuration of an SPLM. CLS, therefore, is a preliminary model for a family of machines SPLM with varying capabilities and complexities. An example program execution is given in detail.
