AbstractThis report discusses application software options that are available for the design of development flight test microprocessor packages. Prelaunch parameter updates, telemetry channel calibration, system and processor self-test, raw data store, reduced data store, and telemetry formatting are some of the on-board functions that software can perform in addition to the customary control and arithmetic calculation tasks. A specific application that implements these functions as software modules and the hardware needed for support is described. The hardware in this application includes a 16-bit microprocessor that is dedicated for real time operations and an 8-bit microprocessor that services the self-test functions.
