Abstract
A Honeywell Level-6 minicomputer has been adapted to the task of conducting the test and calibration of the HOE Homing Sensor at the Honeywell Electro-Optics Center's Low Background Calibration Facility, (LBCF). Special circuitry has been added to the standard Level-6 General Purpose Interface units to enable the computer to communicate with the sensor and the LBCF. Communication is accomplished by a handshake technique controlled by assembly language interrupt programs. These programs are subroutines in larger FORTRAN programs which implement specific test procedures. One group of FORTRAN test programs verify the proper functioning of the sensor and run relatively autonomously. A second group, on the other hand, for the more complete LBCF tests, are designed to be highly interactive, providing the test conductor the means to readily select test parameters as desired.
