AbstractApplication of new and modern technology to Fire Control Systems (FCS) requires qualification through extensive simulated testing followed by field testing. This paper addresses application of a telemetry preprocessor in a real time closed loop test system, for testing an anti-aircraft tank FCS. A predefined and preprogrammed test sequence loaded into the preprocessor allows it to accept measurement data and return processed stimuli data in real time to various units in the loop. An acquisition and display subsystem consisting of a host computer and workstation allows data archiving and quicklook displays to check data integrity. Interactive operator and/or programmable control of test sequencing permits system flexibility. Ultimate usage as a test set for verification of function, performance and accuracy in a production environment would give the user a test platform which provides productivity improvement.
