Abstract : The DCDRS RCC operational software incorporates the basic concepts of modularity, centralized common processing and centralized control functions to produce an operational program responsive to DCDRS requirements and amenable to change and maintenance. These programs are constructed in a modular manner to facilitate the several system configurations. Each program configuration is constructed to support the associated hardware data processing system, as well as the associated operational requirements. The RCC software has interfaces with the RPV data links, the TACS/CRC data links, controller consoles, planning terminals, map digitizers, plotters and standard peripheral devices such as discs, magnetic tapes, and high speed printers. The software provides operational capability for mission planning, mission support, RPV control and communications interface with other systems.
