Abstract : The five papers in the document describe a multiple-computer system resulting from a relatively new trend at the Applied Physics Laboratory away from individual, stand-alone computers and toward the interconnection of computers. The initial impetus for this trend was to gain economy of scale and to slow the rapid proliferation of computers dedicated to specific jobs. This new emphasis has required the development of technology for combining real-time and multiprogramming modes of operation. This will enable a system of interdependent computers to provide simultaneous hybrid simulation, interactive digital simulation, hardware tie-ins to these simulations, a wide variety of on-line terminal operations, and batch processing. The system software and hardware links necessary to implement such a multiple computer system are discussed in detail. (Author)
