Abstract : A computer program for simulation and effectiveness evaluation of avionics for military aircraft has been developed and expanded for the purpose of providing the Avionics Laboratory with the capability of executing the Avionics Evaluation Program (AEP) via interactive graphics and to adapt the program for use on the Avionics Laboratory computer. The AEP is a very large computer program with extensive multidiscipline input data. There was a very clear need to provide an easier means of executing the program, storing potential input data, and graphically presenting results. During the contract extension Battelle's Columbus Laboratories have (1) procured interactive graphics equipment, (2) developed interactive software, (3) procured additional equipment for the Air Force Avionics Laboratory PDP 11 computer to support the interactive capability, and (4) made additional modifications to the AEP to enhance its capability and to make it compatible with the PDP 11 computer. This report presents a description of the resultant effort.
