      The performance and cost effectiveness of em bedded processing has greatly enhanced the personal computer's (PC) capability, particularly when used for real-time satellite data acquisition, telemetry processing, command and control operations. Utilizing a transputer based parallel architecture, a modular, reusable, and scalable control system is attainable. The synergism between the personal computer and embedded processing results in efficient, low cost desktop workstations up to 1000 MIPS of performance.
