LGA Processing Software for the Energetic Particles Detector

Source: C. Brull and S. Stone, December 19, 1998

1. Introduction

The following document describes the LGA processing software for the Galileo energetic particles detector. It is intended for the EPD programmer/analyst to use in the maintenance of the LGA processing software.

LGAPROC was written in C on a VAX 4000/90 with VMS operating system version 6.1. The processor is designed to be portable to other platforms and system dependent programming is avoided. The processor must make calls to the NAIF SPICE routines; consequently, these must be available to run LGAPROC.  Currently, the SPICE routines are called through a package called cfortran.h.
