In this thesis, the algorithms for an A-7E aircraft performance calculator were developed and then implemented on three small data processors of different programming levels and storage capabilities . The utility of data is a function of several variables including accuracy and availability. The problem of retrieving performance data from the Naval Air Training and Operating Procedures Standardization (NATOPS) Manuals is significantly lessened by the devices demonstrated in this investigation. Nine performance chart groups, yielding data usually considered necessary for flight, were reduced to a series of analytical expressions. These analytical expressions were demonstrated to reproduce NATOPS Manual data to a high degree of accuracy. Implementation was demonstrated on a desk computer, a hand held calculator and a microprocessor.
