AbstractThis paper describes new concepts of test mean and processes to perform flight test for all Airbus aircraft family. The FTI (Flight Test Installation) designed for A320, A340, A380 and A350 programs include acquisition system, recorder, data processing, visualisation, Flight Test Engineer Station and optional functionalities (video acquisition, DGPS, telemetry ...) In the past, these test means were specific for each test aircraft. Due to the large number of Aircraft development in parallel Airbus has designed and standardized new tests means for development and production aircraft. The first goal is to generate significant benefits regarding time and costs savings by simplifying installation and reusing all the test installations components. This paper shows the opportunities and challenges of these new concepts.

FLIGHT LINE TEST SET, IRIG TONE GENERATOR AND FLIGHT TERMINATION TRANSMITTER ON A PC CARDCirineo, Tony; NAWCWPNS (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1997-10)This paper describes the development of a PC based IRIG tone generator and flight termination transmitter. The tone generator and flight termination transmitter card are part of a flight line test set. The test set has several PC based cards which include an S-Band telemetry receiver, a bit synchronizer, a decommutator, an encryption support card and the flight termination transmitter card. The test set can perform a complete end to end test of a weapon’s flight termination system prior to loading on an aircraft.
ENHANCED FLIGHT TERMINATION SYSTEM FLIGHT DEMONSTRATION AND RESULTSTow, David; Arce, Dennis; National Aeronautics and Space Administration; Bourne Technologies, Inc. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2007-10)This paper discusses the methodology, requirements, tests, and implementation plan for the live demonstration of the Enhanced Flight Termination System (EFTS) using a missile program at two locations in Florida: Eglin Air Force Base (AFB) and Tyndall AFB. The demonstration included the integration of EFTS Flight Termination Receivers (FTRs) onto the missile and the integration of EFTS-program-developed transmitter assets with the mission control system at Eglin and Tyndall AFBs. The initial test stages included ground testing and captive-carry flights, followed by a launch in which EFTS was designated as the primary flight termination system for the launch.
FLIGHT TESTING IS OUR PROFESSION – AN OVERVIEW OF TEST FLIGHT AND DEVELOPMENT CENTRESchuite, Gerard; South African Air Force (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1999-10)The aim of this presentation is to give an overview of TFDC’s capabilities as a flight test centre and the approach with respect to the management of flight testing.
