Modern, High-Speed FTI Recorders and Switches Requirements and Use Cases
Flight test instrumentation (FTI) architectures are increasingly migrating to airborne “network” systems, comprised of distributed sub-systems of data acquisition, processing, and recorders. One result is that the network switches become more critical, as do the FTI recorders that must acquire large amounts of data from different data sources. This white paper discusses the factors influencing switch and recorder unit design for a distributed FTI system and a single recorder alternative.
Rugged Instrumentation System Solutions for Applications with Limited Space
This white paper examines the challenges and solutions for implementing a compact data acquisition package, with a particular focus on missiles, and proposes a modular solution to best meet tight space and installation time requirements without compromising system flexibility.
