Abstract : The MICOM Digital Analysis Simulation (MIDAS) is a digital computer program which can simulate the tactical functions of an advanced technology air-defense interceptor missile, including its ground-sited radar and guidance processing equipment. The simulation was developed for execution on the CDC 6600 digital computer and is currently being used for system analysis studies of the SAM-D missile system. Under the first phase of this contract, M and S Computing provided the Guidance and Control Directorate with a digital computer program that was functionally and mathematically equivalent to the then current version of the CDC 6600 MIDAS. This program was made to execute on the Sigma 5 Analog Coupler Driver. Since contract award, numerous modifications have been made to the CDC MIDAS. Under this portion of the contract, M and S Computing has implemented these CDC modifications for the Sigma MIDAS, and has added capabilities which enhance the operation of the program. This document details the modifications and enhancements which have been made under this contract.
