This thesis is an attempt to prove the value of the Control System Design Environment by designing a shipboard or ground-based data link receiver to communicate with the data link installed in the Coast Guard HH-65A helicopter. The Control System Design Environment was intended to allow a designer to use a high-level language to describe the required inputs and outputs of a system. This high-level language, the Control System Design Language (CSDL) is translated into a list of primitives by a Pascal program, CSDL.PAS. The primitive list is then compiled into assembly language by a FORTRAN program, NEWCSDL.FOR. The final output includes the hardware and software lists to build a controller that meets the designer's specifications. This particular project includes a project design much more ambitious than any previously attempted in the Control System Design Environment.
