      I have been asked to jot down a list of advantages and disadvantages of
      using an Intel 386 against a GPS MA31750 (MIL-STD-1750A) processor by the
      end of this week (5th April 1996).

      The software will be a real-time design in an embedded system, probably
      developed and cross-compiled using a UNIX box.

So why do you want to use a 386? The job you're describing seems to be
ideally suited to using a transputer, probably a T425. As far as I
know, space- qualified parts are available and have been flown (Mars
Observer?). Software development is easy and well suited to the task
(real-time, embedded), with very efficient code. Or do you _really_
want to develop such a system in Ada??
