    Paper by J. W. Moore and J. R. Mitchell, Quality & Reliability Assurance Laboratory, Marshall Space Flight Center, and H. H. Trauboth, Computation Laboratory, Marshall Space Flight Center. The paper summary notes, "The advancement of the space age into increasingly complex and ambitious missions requiring the development and operation of more sophisticated and intricate launch vehicles has generated numerous problem areas. The purpose of this paper is to define the Aerospace Vehicle Simulation; discuss the relationship of this simulation to the major problem areas of checkout; describe the development and implementation of this simulation system; indicate multidiscipline applications to present and future programs."

    This paper presents a discussion of a hybrid simulation used to dynamically verify the Saturn Guidance and Control subsystems. First, the Saturn vehicle is briefly described to provide background information. The Instrument Unit (IU) is considered in more detail to give a proper setting for the Guidance and Flight Control (G and FC) discussion that follows. After a brief description of the actual G and FC System operation, simulation models of the G and FC components are considered in detail. This is followed by a discussion of the model assignment to a particular computer (digital or analog) and justification for making that assignment. Finally, results of the AS-204/LM1 hybrid simulation studies are briefly considered with mention of the actual flight data.

    The introduction notes, "The Saturn V launch vehicle is being developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's George C. Marshall Space Flight Center for Project Apollo; Saturn I and Saturn IB vehicles are providing the early testing and support for Project Apollo. The nerve center of the Saturn is its guidance and control system. An airborne digital computer provides the link which closes both the guidance and control loops,making verification of the flight computer program of vital importance. During a powered flight this onboard digital computer program can be divided into four major parts:a) guidance, including navigation, b) control, c) vehicle sequencing, and d) computer telemetry."

    Digital computer simulation of the Saturn I Instrument Unit electrical networks was accomplished using the Discrete Network Simulation programs. The schematics were analyzed and a logic model prepared which consisted of a series of Boolean equations. The test procedures, which are written in the Acceptance, Test, or Launch Language (ATOLL), consist of a sequential set of computer instructions for the RCA llOA checkout computer to control the operation of the electrical networks. The procedures also contain the predicted results for each operation. The driving functions for the simulation of the model are generated from the ATOLL test tape by the Input Generator Program. The time sequenced operation of the networks is indicatedby the output from the simulation program in addition to the number of times each component in the system changes state. The results of the simulation are compared to the test procedure predictions on the ATOLL tape by the Comparator Program and any differences are listed. The Comparator Program also lists any component which did not change state at least once.
