A digital data recorder and transfer device for the MARCONI 722B Satellite Navigation Receiver
Dr. David Wells of the Department of Surveying Engineering uses a MARCONI 722B Satellite Navigation Receiver in his research. At present, data output from this device is recorded using a paper tape punch. The paper tape produced from the punch is then fed into the IBM 3032 at the U.N.B. Computing Center for calculations and analysis. Needless to say, this methods has proved to be somewhat awkward and cumbersome. The aim of this project is to provide a convenient alternative to the current system, using a micro-computer to collect data directly from the satellite receiver, and then transfer this data to the IBM 3032 through the VSPC online terminal system.
