Abstract : The report presents the results of the Space Programming Language Machine (SPLM) Architecture Study. The principle objective of this work was to develop a computer architecture for the space, ballistic and avionic application area which directly executes a higher order language. The principle document of the design, the Semantic Simulator; the description of the SPLM language (SPIML) and its Translator/Compactor; and the memory reduction realized with the design are presented. All software for this effort was developed utilizing an interactive APL system. (Author)
