Development of military ARGUS computers and MOD bus for close-coupled signal processing applications
The next generation of Naval sonar systems will make extensive use of flexible programable modules to implement signal-processing algorithms. A number of UK Defence Establishments are engaged in a series of coordinated hardware and software developments which will provide basic modules for a wide range of multi-processor applications. These developments include an advanced bus for tightly-coupled computer systems, a general-purpose 2-card computer module (the Hilitary ARGUS), ru1d serial digital links for loosely-coupled processors, together with a new standard military equipment build practice based on the double EUROCARD. Software support includes a CORAL compiler and versions of the MASCOT modular software construction system.
