AbstractSince the advent of the DEC VAX 11/780 in the late 1970’s, the trend in telemetry computer systems is to do more processing of data on the data acquisition system. This trend has led to more and more functions being performed on these systems. In addition, multi-user features of VAX/VMS are being used in these newer systems to enhance review and processing of the data. Lastly, a trend to systems that can be operated by users less familiar with the computer has led to changes in the interaction of software and user (for example, menu driven systems). The FDAPS system was designed as a total system with hardware and software tradeoffs made to provide a high speed, “user friendly”, multi-user system.
