The Elliott MCS 920M is a standard production digital computer. It is used in the inertial guidance system for the ELDO Europa satellite launcher. Vehicle acceleration and attitude are measured by an inertial platform, digitized and input to the computer, which calculates present velocity, position, and demanded attitude and outputs error signals to the launcher autopilots and cut-off signals to the third stage motors. The flight program is tested by use of another general purpose digital… CONTINUE READING
