FLIDAS - Flight Data Studio

FLIDAS reads IRIG 106 Chapter 10 files with flight data and allows accessing the data on the raw data, protocol and Parameter level for display and export. It also allows debugging the CH10 file structure itself. FLIDAS can receive CH10 UDP Data Streams to display raw data, protocol data and decoded Parameters for checking of proper setup and calibration of FTI equipment and as simple monitor application.
