Real-time or real-time interactive flight testing or displays is the use of rapidly processed flight test data displayed in a form most effective for engineering evaluation or analysis at a rate permitting interaction between engineering personnel on the ground and the pilot in the test aircraft. The time delays involved in making the computations and absorbing the meaning of the displayed results of a particular test must be small enough to allow the engineer to communicate his satisfaction or concerns to the flight test controller and the pilot soon enough to permit re-testing, modifications, omission of the next step, or proceeding as planned. Typical delays of 1 or 2 minutes could probably be tolerated.
