STANDARD CIRCLES MESSAGE. This
message is used to display one of the 13 types of
standard circles. The X/Y coordinate word specifies
the center of the circle and the V/C word defines the
type of circle and therefore its diameter. The standard
circles message may be addressed to a particular
ELLIPSES MESSAGE. This message generates up
to 512 different diameter circles and ellipses. The
circle message consists of a circle word (modified
DC/DU coordinate word) which defines the A and B
radius of the circle, an X/Y coordinate word that
defines the center of the circle, and a V/C word that
defines the type of circle.
The ellipse message consists of two ellipse words
that define the major and minor axis and angle of
inclination of the ellipse, an X/Y coordinate word that
defines the center of the ellipse and a V/C word that
defines the type of ellipse.
Both programmable circle and ellipse messages
may be addressed to a particular console.
OFFSET MESSAGE. The offset message
offsets the display of sweep and symbols to any
position on the CRT if the console operator has
selected OFFSET on his console. The X/Y coordinate
word indicates the amount of offset to the addressed
PULSE AMPLIFIER/SYMBOL GENERATOR
The PA/SG is actually two pieces of equipment in
one cabinet. Several different configurations of this
equipment are available and the one installed with
your system is dependant on the type of display
consoles on the ship.
The basic AN/UYA-4(V)
system uses the PA/SG configuration. Systems with
the CIGARS modification installed will have the
pulse amplifier but not the symbol generator. Systems
with CIGARS and direct computer interface (DCI)
will not have a PA/SG.
Figure 3-13.Display messages.
The pulse amplifier (PA) provides for the
amplification and distribution of computer input and
output data between the display consoles and the
