Abstract : A Versatile Airborne Data Acquisition and Replay (VADAR) system is described. This system was developed to meet the requirements of the Royal Australian Navy in conduct of flight trials with helicopters operating at sea from ships fitted with helicopter flight decks. VADAR is based upon a portable personal computer that mostly utilises commercially available hardware. The system is menu controlled by in-house developed programs that also provide quick-look and replay facilities.
