Abstract
In response to a requirement to investigate methods to improve the command and control systems available for remotely piloted vehicles (RPVs), in 1988 DRES initiated the development of an advanced command and control system (ACCS) for RPVs. This system was conceptualized as a layered microprocessor architecture with two classes of processor: a computing element (CE) and an input/output module (IOM). The final report summarizes the activities associated with the design and manufacture of the CEs. The contract was split into four distinct phases. The first phase would evaluate the system requirements and specifications and come up with a preliminary design definition that would present the precise configuration of the autopilot. The second phase would review the outcome of the first phase and determine the most attractive design and optimum manufacturing options considering the design and size constraints and performance capabilities of the unit.
