3 System Specifications OS: Redhat Linux 9.0. OS: Redhat Linux 9.0. Language: C. All of our code is C and/or C++. Language: C. All of our code is C and/or C++. GUI: Motif, tied to Unix. New developments in Qt (KDE), which is portable to MS-Win, Mac, Unix. GUI: Motif, tied to Unix. New developments in Qt (KDE), which is portable to MS-Win, Mac, Unix. Typical flight is 8-9 hours with variables Typical flight is 8-9 hours with variables Analog channels Analog channels raw block data (PMS, GPS, IRS, etc) raw block data (PMS, GPS, IRS, etc) derived variables derived variables. LRT (1hz) takes about 2 minutes to process. LRT (1hz) takes about 2 minutes to process. HRT (25hz) takes about 15 minutes to process. HRT (25hz) takes about 15 minutes to process.
