AbstractPulse Code Modulation (PCM) data systems are used extensively in testing aircraft all over the world. These systems can be tailored to almost any set of measurement requirements using flexible, modular equipment available from several sources. This paper describes a system assembled from readily available components manufactured in the United States that is being used to certify a Russian aircraft flying in The Commonwealth of Independent States. The system features distributed data acquisition, programmable signal conditioning and PCM encoding modules, multi-channel temperature and pressure scanners and real time data displays on board the aircraft. The impact of U.S. export controls and our experience to date is also discussed.
