SBIR 95-1 SOLICITATION
ON-BOARD REAL-TIME DATA ACQUISITION AND ANALYSIS SYSTEM
We propose an advanced portable data acquisition and analysis Flyscan system for on-board flight testing and other demanding telemetry-based field applications. The Flyscan system integrates on-board real-time data acquisition with real-time analysis of analog and digital telemetry data. It will greatly enhance the productivity and safety of researchers by providing processed test information directly to the personnel closest to the systems under test. Existing computing and instrumentation systems typically address the acquisition and analysis of data separately; test data is first collected then later analyzed as a separate data reduction task. But many flight test and other applications demand combined real-time data acquisition and analysis, such as those involving great risk and expense, or human-in-the-loop data evaluation and verification. Creare currently has a foundation technology in its Scanalyzer system which integrates real-time data acquisition and analysis tasks in a benchtop workstation configuration. By adapting this state-of-the-art software to new-generation portable computing hardware, and developing a full set of acquisition and analysis features within the constraints imposed by this hardware, we will provide an innovative solution to this pressing need for on-board test data assimilation.
Potential Commercial Applications:
In addition to flight testing, the Flyscan system will have commercial applications in vehicle testing, factory floor equipment diagnostics, as a shared portable laboratory tool, at-home medical health monitoring, and field test and equipment diagnostics. The Flyscan system will also be competitive with existing fixed non-portable data acquisition systems.
