Abstract:

New technology in recent years has provided significant improvements in the operating characteristics of flight test data systems. These improvements, from the instrument engineers point of view, can be measured in such terms as increased data accuracy, system capacity, flexibility, etc., while to the flight test engineer they can be interpreted in terms of broader objectives for each flight, more precise examination of the variables at test conditions, or more comprehensive post-flight data analysis. The intent of the report is to provide for the non-instrument engineer, particularly those involved in flight testing, an overview of new data acquisitionprocessing systems and capabilities, a look at new mathematical techniques for extracting data from recorded information, and illustrate how these new developments have influenced the design of flight test programmes.
