Abstract:

In this thesis, the algorithms for an A-7E performance calculator were developed and then implemented on three small data processors of different programming levels and storage capabilities. The utility of data is a function of several variables including accuracy and availability. Nine performance chart groups, yielding the data usually considered necessary for flight, were reduced to a series of analytical expressions. These analytical expressions were demonstrated to reproduce NATOPS Manual data to a high degree of accuracy. Implementation was demonstrated on a deck computer, a hand held calculator and a microprocessor.
