Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division’s Aerospace Instrumentation (AI) group has recently added the popular IADS real-time and post-test display and analysis software to its product line – you can learn more here. IADS excellent product development and support will continue without interruption.
IADS is a Real Time and Post Test display and analysis software suite that supports multidiscipline testing in a single comprehensive package. IADS software facilitates Real Time mission analysis and raises situational awareness, safety monitoring, and test point clearance capabilities to a new level. This is accomplished by utilizing tools previously available only within Post Test environments. The IADS toolset includes high fidelity strip charts with threshold checking, frequency response plots with predicted data overlays, 2D and 3D moving maps, 3D models with system-wide visualization, XY plots with envelope calculations, and a test point system that allows the user to easily mark events and automate batch processing. All displays have the ability to instantly recall any portion of the test data for display and analysis without affecting Real Time data performance.
Utilizing an interactive interface, the engineer can easily create or customize displays, parameter definitions, analysis options and test setup in a matter of seconds. Derived equations can be added or modified on-the-fly for use throughout the system. Analysis options are easily selected using built-in property dialogs. All support data can be input using a familiar spreadsheet interface. This flexibility allows displays, data, and analysis techniques to be built, tested and saved with little effort at any time during the mission or at the engineer’s desktop.
IADS ease of use, depth of display capability, and powerful analysis techniques can be used to save time and effort on any test program.
