ID Motorola Programmer?

Does anyone know exactly what this was used for? It has Motorola part # 01-P21724G001 on the case and says it is a Scenario Programmer System.

Has a Gridcase Plus laptop, prom burner and proms. The software in the computer has Motorola's name. The software asks for inputs of VHF frequencies and locations, transmit times etc. The software can calculate a "scenario" showing parameters input into the software.

BatD.exe is the main file that executes this.

Looks to be ex-military based on the hard sided case.

Its obviously a prom burner based app. Never heard of senario before. it might be worth looking at what is sent or written on the prom. I assume the program will read the prom.

It maybe its used on a syntor generation radio.

Its definitely military. 94990 is the CAGE code. Comes back as;

MOTOROLA INC. DBA INTEGRATED INFORMATION SYSTEMS GROUP Scottsdale AZ. The part number is obsolete though.

My guess is this probably has something to do with Motorola's military radio equipment from back in the day, the AN/PRC type stuff. Probably did custom PROMs for the frequencies in those radios.

The saber thing has nothing to do with the programmed, the program required a disk to be in the drive before running, so that's what I had laying around.

Will the program let you read any of the EPROM's that came with the gear? This sounds like some rudimentary Frequency Hop system like SINCGARS . The technology existed back on the 80's. Then again, it could be for communicating with ET!
