Abstract : A coordinated research effort in the area of interactive computer graphics using a host-satellite configuration is described. Central to the project is the use of a high-level programming language and two microprogrammable processors. The system as a whole is discussed, as well as the areas of interaction between the design of the satellite's instruction sets and the design of its operating system and the compiler. (Author)
