Abstract : The intent of this report is twofold. First, it is to establish a single document which can provide the reader with a preliminary and fundamental understanding of the operating concepts and inherent capabilities of the Collins C8500 Computer System. Secondly, to provide an appraisal of the suitability and utility of the C8500 System based on projected experimentation requirements in direct support of RADC's Communications and Navigation Division mission. It is intended that this information will provide the reader with an understanding of the system from a prospective user's standpoint. (Modified author abstract)
