Feasibility studies, GOAL, Computer program language
The introduction of a new checkout language at Kennedy Space Center has required more effort to create test and operations software than anticipated. The new language is called GOAL, for Ground Operations Aerospace Language. The feasibility of a computer aided GOAL coding system that would reduce the effort required to create GOAL programs is investigated in this report. A background of GOAL, its coding requirements, and the facilities used at present for GOAL coding is presented first. Next, the computer aided GOAL coding concept is presented, and requirements for such a system are developed. After the requirements are presented, a system which has been used to develop some concepts and check their feasibility is described. Finally, some conclusions are drawn on the feasibility of the computer aided GOAL coding concept, and hardware required to implement an operational system are presented.
