The goals of this project were the development of performance measures suitable for use in real-time embedded systems. Developed a network measure to guide the designer in choosing an appropriate network topology. The measure combines graphic-theoretic concepts in evaluating the underlying reliability of the network and other means to evaluate the ability of the network to support interprocessor traffic. A second measure, called the computer measure, is meant to evaluated the computer system in terms that are of importance for real-time applications. A simulator testbed called TRIDENT was built to evaluate the network and surge measures. Much of the technology developed under this project is being transferred to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory JPL.
