COGAP: AN INTERACTIVE GRAPHICS MINICOMPUTER-BASED SHIPS' ARRANGEMENTS PROGRAM
The COGAP computer program was written by the Lockheed-Georgia Company for the (U.S.) Naval Ship Engineering Center and was delivered in October 1972. Since then, other organisations both within the Navy and outside, have added to the program. This paper describes the original COGAP program as implemented on the Control Data Corporation 6000 and 1700 series computers and 274 graphics console. A portion of the COGAP program, namely the template construction progam, has been implemented on a minicomputer-based graphics system. This provides a graphics system for the definition, manipulation and visualisation of three-dimensional templates compatible with the existing COGAP formats. The software and techniques used within this system, known as MINIMENTS (MINIcomputer arrangeMENTS) are described and the paper concludes with some discussion of the use of three-dimensional graphic models in the detailed design process.
