Abstract : This research characterizes flight control software in terms of the Ada (TM) constructs used and of the performance characteristics that determine the suitability of a particular compiler/processor system for flight control software. A new set of three flight control software benchmarks based on this characterization was evaluated on two MIL-STD-175OA processors using two Ada compliers. Results show that compiler/processor combinations can be compared for their ability to implement flight control software in execution speed and memory size required. The benchmarks provide time and space requirements for a typical sample of flight control software.
