Abstract : The subject was interpreted broadly to include all aspects of data acquisition, and to be synonymous with the term Aircraft Integrated Data Systems (AIDS). The processed data can be analysed and used in accident investigation, project design, airworthiness (including fatigue) studies, aircraft maintenance and mission performance assessment; a review is given of past activities, current requirements and future development in these fields. In the first three of these areas procedures are well-established and relatively simple instrumentation is available; in mission performance assessment and aircraft maintenance, however, AIDS have reached a less advanced stage, though great promise is shown. In general, it is concluded that, although a considerable range of techniques and equipment already exists, most are of an experimental nature and it is essential that equipment suppliers should continue to strive to reduce size, weight and cost while improving accuracy and reliability.
