AeroTest America 2008 Announces Flight Test Instrumentation Tutorial
The half-day class will clearly illustrate the instrumentation challenges associated with acquiring physical measurements during flight test. Dynamic and electrical models for transducers will be discussed, as well as transducer mounting influences; cable associated errors; and necessary signal conditioning considerations. Data sampling guidance for resolution and rate will be provided, along with selection criteria for anti-aliasing filters. Once signals are recorded, unique processes will be described, to enable documentation of the measurement’s system noise floor, as well as adequacy of system frequency capabilities for recorded signals. This latter process is entitled "data validation", and is requisite for performing subsequent data accuracy analysis. Finally, a measurement system designer's checklist will be provided, as well as closing comments on the future of flight test instrumentation. This seminar will be conducted in an open classroom-style format, with a detailed overview of the types of instrumentation and related technologies utilized in this application environment.
The cost to attend this seminar is $100 per person, which includes seminar registration, lunch, and handout materials. For more information, visit the AeroTest America Web site.
