AbstractThis paper describes the Production Monitor (PM), a result of integrating very diverse hardware architectures into a compact, portable, real time airborne data monitor, and data analysis station. Flight testing of aircraft is typically conducted with personnel aboard during flight. These personnel monitor real time data, play back recorded data, and adjust test suites to certify or analyze systems as quickly as possible. In the past, Boeing has used a variety of dissimilar equipment and software to meet our testing needs. During the process of standardizing and streamlining testing processes, the PM was developed. PM combines Data Flow, VME, Ethernet, and PC architectures into a single integrated system. This approach allows PM to run applications, provide indistinguishable operator interfaces, and use data bases and peripherals common to our other systems.
