DataProbeCLASSIC - A NEW VERSION OF THE CLASSIC DATA-ANALYSIS TOOLMcCormick, John; Ferrill, Paul; Avionics Test and Analysis Corporation (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2006-10)DataProbeCLASSIC is the new PC-based version of the classic tool for telemetry data analysis and visualization. DataProbe was the brainchild of the Unites States Navy and its contractors. At a time when computer terminals were expensive and graphical visualization of data was cutting edge, this software product was specifically designed to process time-series data in an efficient manner. The primary strength of DataProbe is the capability to read specific data items for specific time slices from very large data files rather than reading the entire data file into memory. The efficiency and versatility of the product was quickly noted, and it gained widespread use within the testing community. This paper presents a brief history of the legacy product and discusses the features and strengths of new implementation.
