Abstract:

The objective of the ArchitectureEnvironment Evaluation project was to determine the ideal microprocessor and the Ada software environment for embedded guidance, navigation, and control processing for tactical missiles. Off-the-shelf microprocessors and compilers were evaluated using the Optimum Guidance Law Implementation OGLI benchmarks. The processors included the MIPS R3000, Sun SPARC, Motorola 88000, IBM System6000, TI TMS320C30, INMOS transputer T800, Intel 80386, and the DEC MicroVAX 11. This research also included an experiment implementing OGLI on a parallel computer transputer to improve performance.
