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. Recently features for displaying activity and content of CH10 UDP Data Streams are being added.

FLIDAS is available in a free version and four general purpose commercial versions that can be further extended by plug-ins for specific needs. The general purpose versions have a very affordable price.

XML CH10 mapping

An XML CH10 mapping plug-in offers creation of artificial CH10 files with an XML definition and conversion of real CH10 files to XML. This is a unique feature of FLIDAS so far that made it to the official documents of the IRIG 106 standards body. It is included in the free version. Read more on this.

Linux on request:

Simply extract the ZIP archive in a directory on your hard disc. There is no installation, registry entries, spyware etc. You don't even need administrator privileges. To clean up just delete the directory.

You will need a Java 7 or later runtime environment (most likely already installed on your computer). Otherwise download Java here.

It is intended to discontinue Windows XP and Java 7 support. Both are no longer supported by the developers. This doesn't mean FLIDAS will definitely not work with Windows XP anymore. Oracle claims that Java 8 can be installed on Windows XP but there is no support for it in case it fails under special system configurations. For new customers we will try to avoid any Windows XP or Java 7 dependencies.
