Abstract : This report documents the study of Electronic Target Signal Generator (ETSG) Software. It is intended to provide a reference for ETSG operation and development. Chapter one introduces the concept and function of the ETSG. Chapter two outlines the initialization software and chapter three describes the real-time or target CPU firmware. Chapter four contains conclusions and recommendations for future work. Appendices one through eight contain information about program variables, parameters, subroutines, and algorithms. Appendix nine is a listing of a BASIC program which was developed to aid in doing ETSG-related calculations. (Author)
