Abstract : Mil-Std-1750A is the fourth generation of computer hardware standards that have been embraced atg Westinghouse since the early 1960's. The use of standards has had many advantages: rapidly maturing support software and hardware; a large pool of software engineers that can readily move from one program to another; lower recurring and non-recurring costs; less lead time on programs; similar or identical software benches for different programs. Mil-Std-1750A is presently utilized as an embedded computer on three major programs and has been proposed on several others. (Author)
