AbstractThe calibration processes consume a big quantity of resources: equipment and people, time and cost. As the number of calibration points increase the resources increase in the same extent. This automatic tool, aimed to reduce these resources, has been designed for commanding, managing and analyzing in real time a large number of acquired data points coming from the specimen under calibration and the standards used in the calibration process, applying at the same time the metrological algorithms which validate the calibration point. Its greatest achievement is the implementation of the rules for accepting or discarding the data point and the level of automation of the process. In the last flight test campaign its usage has been crucial for providing on time the data with the high accuracy required. It was achieved the commissioning of almost 200 temperature parameters in a short period of time taking advantage of equipment which nominal accuracy was not high enough for their direct application.
