Airbus Defence & Space treasures more than 10 years of expertise in implementing fully network based flight test instrumentations (FTI). The developments accomplished during this long walk have brought to fruition very flexible and versatile FTI. Big platform programs (such as C295, A330-MRTT and A400M) have been taking good advantage from these features. Transferring these features to a smaller aircraft (such as a fighter) has been the last challenge achieved. Restrictions due to the lack of space and crew onboard had to be overcome by implementing some intelligence onboard. This paper contains description and capabilities of the networked intelligent FTI architecture implemented in a new flight test fighter.
