Abstract : The Gear Averaging Signal Processor (GASP) is an IBM PC XT board designed and built by AMRL to calculate synchronous vibration signal averages in real-time. This report describes GASP at an initial stage of development In which it produces signal averages in a non-real-time mode. To evaluate GASP in this mode of operation, a comparison was made with a PC-based signal averaging system. This comparison shows that GASP works effectively, but is limited by the memory available on the board and the precision of some of its floating point calculations. (AN)
