Abstract : Software techniques used in an automated real-time fuze testing system are discussed. Most of the techniques are independent of the electrical circuit being tested and the computer controlling the system. Although the software described was initially designed for testing the XM596 proximity fuze, only the actual fuze testing programs need be specifically designed for a given testing system. The programs comprising SOSOFT are functionally organized into eight major subsystems--real-time priority scheduling system, interrupt servicing system, input/output control system, executive utility system, basic testing system, data-display system, conversational control system, and reliability monitoring system.
