Abstract : Various methods of providing a data acquisition system for the Department of Aeronautics Cessna 310H model aircraft were considered. The system was to be reliable, functional and reasonably simple to operate in conjunction with its use in the flying laboratory. A need for dynamic flight information was recognized as an integral component in evaluating flying qualities. A three-axis rate gyro system was designed to meet this requirement. Output requirements included data accuracy, data availability and an associated simplicity in data reduction. (Modified author abstract)
