Paper Abstract

This paper introduces the 'complex instruments ranking with a new computational environment' or CIRCE software tool for aiding elaboration and exploitation of analytic models for performance management of optical instruments. CIRCE is currently developed by the optical instrument preliminary design team at the Aerospatiale Company's Cannes, France, Center, in cooperation with the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique' or INRIA at the nearby Science Park of Sophia Antipolis. As a multiprogram tool, CIRCE incorporates the requirements at all stages of optical instrument development, from conception through manufacturing. It affords an original approach to creation and operation of performance models that facilitates know- how conservation through introduction of the notions of concepts (relations bases) and models (computation tree). It eases out the everyday tasks of engineers owing to generating capabilities for performance budgets or parametric analyses and to automatic numeric code generation.
