Abstract : The objective of the study is to validate the design of an advanced guidance computer architecture developed under the Architectural Study for Advanced Guidance Computers. The Architecture was designed to permit the effective use of high-order programming languages in the definition and implementation of advanced ballistic missile missions. The method used to validate the AGC Architecture was through system simulation. The developed simulation software consisted of: (1) an SPL/MK III Compiler operating on the Aerospace Corporation's CDC 6600 which generated AGC Assembly Language left hand Polish string code; (2) an AGC Symbolic Assembly System, and (3) an AGC Architecture Functional Simulator. The SPL/MK III Compiler was developed utilizing the System Development Corporation (SDC) SPLIT Meta Compiler, and the AGC Assembler and Simulator were programmed in SPL/MK IV/6600 prototype compiler.
