Abstract : Computer System (APCS), a set of data management system subfunctions, an analysis of the Air Force Tactical Air Control Center (TACC) as viewed from a Current Operations testbed, and a set of comparison features were developed. The APCS consists of an associative processor containing two processing units of 2048 words (256 bits/word) each, linked to a sequential processor. A set of generic data management functions is described, along with data management subfunctions that may be programmed on the APCS using a relational data structure. Three TACC testbed analysis functions were programmed for the APCS and for the testbed IBM 1800, with the performance of both systems being normalized to the same basic technology. Measurements showing APCS performance subfunctions (retrieval and update) are presented; an initial APCS performance improvement of 3:1 with respect to the TACC functions is shown.
