Abstract : A dedicated on-line computer is used to expand the capabilities of the CDAA RDF System at the University of Illinois. Initial configuration of the system will allow the on-line computer to be used in three possible ways: (1) to buffer the data collected from the RDF system and efficiently store them on magnetic tape for later analysis; (2) to monitor the data collected so that some types of gross errors could be detected in real time; (3) to carry out angle of arrival calculations on an on-line, real-time basis. This report describes the manner in which the computer is to be included in the existing system to accomplish these goals. (Author)
