Abstract : The report describes the design of a built-in self-test capability for a military airborne digital computer. The supportive investigation of program constraints and their effects on the example test design is intended to give broad perspective to the general self-test design problem. Alternate procedures for achieving the goal of airborne detection and isolation of a certain class of failures to the modular level are surveyed. A specific test design is evolved illustrating the unique mix of program-oriented, periodic techniques, and added hardware, continuous techniques best suited to the example development program.
