Abstract:

The objective of the Embedded Instrumentation Systems Architecture EISA initiative is to develop a comprehensive methodology for large-scale, nonintrusive, flexible data collection for test and evaluation needs. These needs include system-level developmental, operational, and continuous test and evaluation. The architecture can also be useful in monitoring, diagnostics, and health management, as well as protection in control applications. This article explains how EISA offers a metadata-driven methodology for heterogeneous data collection and aggregation in a synchronized and time-correlated fashion. It also describes how EISA supports real-time instrumentation and sensor management as well as virtual synthetic instrumentation. Finally, it addresses EISA scalability to System of Systems andor Family of Systems embedded instrumentation applications.
