Abstract:

The Visually-Coupled Airborne Systems Simulator VCASS is being developed by the Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory to aid in lowering the cost and increasing the performance of aircraft simulators. An important prerequisite for the VCASS display development is a symbology exerciser that will allow the display presentation designer to rapidly and accurately design new display formats to be tested for the VCASS system. The Symbology Exerciser development was begun by first doing a requirements analysis to establish the functions of the software. The analysis was performed by using a graphical technique which relates the activities and the input, output, and control data. Once the functional requirements were established, the data required by a visual display was analyzed in preparation for the software design. Finally, a structured design technique was applied to produce a software design which has high cohesion and low coupling. The design is presented by using structure charts, inputoutput lists, and module descriptions. Author
