Abstract:

The procedures required to read and process seven-track copies of dynamic flight test data tapes recorded by ARDU using AFTRAS are described. The programs were developed by the Aircraft Behaviour Studies - Fixed Wing group to prepare the data for subsequent detailed analysis on the ARL DEC system-10 1070. The programs described transfer raw data from tape to disc, process the raw data, provide plots or data tables and reformat the data for input into other programs. Problems in handling and storing the large files are discussed and programs for packing the data for storage and unpacking for later use, are also described. Author
