As Flight Test instrumentation (FTI) architectures increasingly migrate to airborne “network” systems – comprised of distributed subsystems of data acquisition, processing, and recorders – the role of network switches that form the network switch fabric become critical. Likewise, the FTI recorders – whether a single large or multiple distributed data sinks – is also increasingly critical as it relates to the data formats suitable for ground processing, given the number and types of data sources. This paper discusses the factors influencing the switch and recorder units, for a Distributed FTI (DFTI) System.
