SYSTRAN was originally developed around a data acquisition system and was primarily intended for use in analysis of periodic and transient data. It was modified to include some capability for handling random data. In use, the program was found to be cumbersome in that a tremendous number of control cards were needed to accomplish certain types of data analysis. A new system was added to allow program controlled generation of these cards. Also a few additional capabilities were included to extend the usefulness of the system. Specifically, this report describes a control card generator, an option to allow redefinition of Fourier Transforms over parts of the frequency range, an option to allow direct loading from cards of Fourier Transforms, an extension of the digital filter length, a major modification of the existing auxiliary system and other minor corrections and modifications.
