Current aircraft development mandate for very complex data acquisition systems, the amount of pa-rameters being stored has grown over the years from a few thousands to almost half a million. Data validation and sanitization has become a priority, especially given current (unattended) data analysis techniques. These two problems mandate for an automated verification and validation system, capable of detecting anomalies in real time . Airbus Defence and Space has developed a custom solution to this problem, it is known as Beholder. This software leverages user knowledge in the form of rules, making them into a validation piece of code which is automatically loaded and executed over a data flow. Airbus Daemons builds up on current Data Server technology to support an automated process exe-cution system. The combination of both, Daemons and Beholder, provide Flight Test with an automat-ed, unmanned data validation procedure, improving data quality and enhancing response times to erroneous sensors or recordings.
