Abstract : The Burroughs Avionics Multiprocessor System was developed as a flexible avionics computer system. Its flexibility was obtained through microprogrammability and modularity. One of its possible application areas is inertial navigation. The goal was to find the best system configuration and to microprogram it for inertial navigation. After examining the system organization and developing application specifications, it was decided that navigation computer emulation was the best way to apply the system to navigation data processing. This emulator is developed and a testing sequence set up. A program which solves the inertial navigation equations is also developed for the emulator. A program test sequence is given, including two simulated test flight paths. (Author)
