Abstract : A system of data acquisition and reduction programs, TXCO is described. The programs were written for the transonic compressor test facility at the Naval Postgraduate School Turbopropulsion Laboratory which is served by an HP1000 series computer operating under RTE-IVB. However, the structure of the program system (strict separation of acquisition and reduction, store raw data as acquired, routines to verify the data system, etc.) is of more general interest, and allows the system to be applied to any test rig. The introduction of a 'program control array' accelerates execution and provides means for communication between programs, which otherwise execute individually.
