Abstract : An algorithm for the application of a special purpose minicomputer to the automatic analysis and initial classification of electronic warfare signals is developed. The minicomputer assembly language version of this algorithm is presented. A FORTRAN program which generates realistic data for signal analysis is described. Using the simulated data and an instruction level simulation program, the algorithm is tested using an IBM 360 computer. Microprogramming techniques are presented which optimize the minicomputer application. (Author)
