AbstractConfiguring typical devices in the telemetry community requires the creation of complex, device-specific configuration files. While the grammar of the configuration files is vendor neutral, the device specific details are vendor specific. Thus, a naïve approach to building these files is to construct a file, test it against a device, and then iterate. The specification sheets (and other documents) for the device can serve as a guide, but the details of flight test configuration possibilities are immense and, in this community, typically not fully documented. This paper describes a process of creating a set of general rules describing characteristics of a configuration file and using those rules to discover the configuration constraints of telemetry devices automatically. The discovered constraints posed by a particular vendor’s device can then be quickly formed into a correct-by-construction constraint-based grammar for use in other systems.
