This paper describes a High Intensity Radiated Fields experiment conducted at the NASA Langley Research Center to validate a tracking performance model for a Boeing 747 digital flight control system implemented on a distributed recoverable computing platform which is subject to upsets. While the upset data does not appear to be Markov, it is found that a burst model for the upset process can be introduced so that a Markov jump-linear performance model can reliably provide an upper bound on the tracking error of the system.
