Abstract:

This study introduces the United States Army Aviation Systems Test Activity, its helicopter engineering flight test mission, a state-of-the-art Advanced Instrumentation and Data Acquisition System, and results from a number of recent test programs. Five years ago, it was recognized that to conduct tests in new technical areas and to meet the increasing desire for rapid data analysis and reporting, improved methods of data acquisition and handling were required. As a result, an Advanced Instrumentation and Data Acquisition System, known as AIDAS, was specified and procured. The first delivery of equipment occurred in the summer of 1970. AIDAS consists of airborne instrumentation and data recording components, ground-based playback equipment, and computers for data analysis.
