Driven by the need for a next generation flight test data acquisition and signal conditioning system, this presentation describes a new solution to fulfill that need. The on-board system design covers all aspects of signal measurement technology from high-precision analog signal processing (even in the highvoltage range for e-drive / battery measurements) to aircraft BUS acquisition and the embedding of existing proprietary user protocols. The modular system is fully compliant with the latest IRIG 106 standards and include real time uplink ground control of the airborne system utilizing IRIG106 Chapter 7 capabilities. These include the complete signal conditioning system configuration, the IRIG106 Chapter 10/11 recorder control, the structure of the IRIG106 Chapter 7 telemetry downlink, the pilot and any local engineering display setups, the transmitter frequencies, modulation types and power levels. The total system timing is GPS based and utilizes the NTP and PTP network timing standards within the air vehicle under test. This presentation should be of interest to anyone interested in air vehicle testing.
