Abstract : This report documents the final version of Software to Automate Guidance Experiments, Version II (or STAGE II), and a FORTRAN -- callable version called STAGE III. Implemented on a SEL 810B minicomputer, STAGE II provides the facility to interactively set up an experiment with great flexibility in parameters for test table control, data acquisition, gyro electronic excitation, and limits checking. Control of the experiment is performed on a real time basis, with 100 channels of data recorded for subsequent analysis with background routines. Stage III provides the capability for executing control and data acquisition parameters that may be determined from previous experimental results using d-optimal design algorithms written in FORTRAN. This report serves both users and programmers by describing the system, its application, and providing details of the system logic in the appendices, with appropriate descriptions of files and program interfaces. Details of the use of each background analysis program are also included in the appendices.
