Abstract
DREA scientists currently use the DREA PRODAT proprietary software package for real-time data acquisition and processing. Over time, many enhancements have been and will be made to PRODAT in order to meet the ever changing needs of both passive and active sonar projects. For various reasons these enhancements have not always been made to the same version of PRODAT. This has resulted in a number of PRODAT versions each with its own subset of PRODAT features. During the period of May 1996 to October 1996, PRIOR Data Sciences Ltd. consolidated all of the features of these versions into a single master PRODAT package. The master package includes seven configurations for the four supported platforms (DEC AXP VMS, SGI Unix, MAXION Unix and MASSCOMP Unix). It also includes integrated compilation and revision tracking systems. Enhancements were made to the MAXION version to give it the same real-time features as the MASSCOMP version. These include IRIG time capture and the acquisition of time-series data directly to 8mm tape. Additional enhancements were made to the X-Windows version of PRODAT. These include verification of time-series displays and triggering, verification of coherence calculations and displays, linked crosshairs for complex displays, alternate crosshair colours, custom defaults files and heterodyne, filter and decimate processing.
