Abstract : Initial Phase I testing identified deficiencies in both the hardware and software of the HF D/F system. The hardware problems were solved easily. However, the software limitations were severe enough to preclude meaningful performance of the Phase II tests. To overcome these software limitations the system's mini computer was reprogrammed to include data storage capabilities and data analysis was shifted to the SURC centeral computer. Therefore, Phase II effort was expanded to include reprogramming the mini computer, programming the SURC computer, and fabrication of an interface between the system and a magnetic tape recorder.
