As the aircrafts are becoming more complex, the amount of data to be captured and processed during the test flights increases a lot and that is what we saw in the past few years. This is a result of the increment on the number and diversity of aircraft buses and the need for more complex acquisition systems to face the requirements and the demand from engineering. This paper describes the architecture of one system that not only met these requirements but introduce new concepts such as data redundancy and multivendor support. The Acquisition System is 100% Network Based but also has one PCM output that is used during Telemetry. This paper also brings some solutions to problems like the high network bandwidth on board, the amount of data recorded during the flights and the manipulation of it on the ground after the flight to allow efficient post flight analysis. There are also additional challenges with the integration of equipment from multiple vendors and the real-time visualization both onboard and during Telemetry.
