Abstract : Grumman Aerospace has used real time testing since 1950. It took a giant step forward with the addition of on-line processing when the Automated Telemetry System (ATS) went on line in 1970. Through two generations of testing capability, the ATS has provided flight test engineers with the capability to acquire and process data and analyze the answers obtained during a test operation. To increase this capability for the more demanding requirements of the future, a New Display and Control System (NDCS) is being developed. When the NDCS is fully operational in 1986, the ATS will move into the next generation of real time testing. This paper describes the requirements set for the new system and the design developed to meet them.
