dc.description.abstractAtmospheric Refractive Index Measurement-1 (ARIM-1) is a sounding rocket payload designed to collect information regarding atmospheric turbulence. ARIM-1 is designed to make high-resolution (4 samples per centimeter) differential temperature measurements of the atmosphere to determine the structure of atmospheric turbulence and hence it's refractive index. The rocket's flight computer schedules and manages data acquisition from various payload sub-systems and transmits this acquired data to the ground station. The goal of this work is to develop a custom design for this flight computer using Very High Speed Integrated Circuit Hardware Description Language (VHDL). This thesis presents simulation and hardware requirements for the flight computer generated from a professional Computer Aided Design package used for VHDL design implementation. This thesis proposes a new architecture for the flight computer that can be implemented with Programmable Logic Devices using VHDL.en_US
