dataMARS and dataSIMS visualize recorded and replayed data
using a wide variety of graphical and alphanumeric displays.
They offer display formats that show engineering-unit values
in plots, needles, bars and numbers, as well as display
formats that show the complete messages and sequences of
messages. You can create display setups that include
multiple display pages with hundreds of displays for
elements, messages and streams, without losing speed and
Panels are a major add-on package option that simplifies
access to monitored and simulated data by constructing
realistic looking front panels from an extensive library of
gadgets. You can use these panels to control a real piece of
equipment, as well as simulate or create virtual equipment
that can communicate on a live bus. Virtual Panels can also
be useful in emulating and testing a proposed front panel
design, in order to simplify the user interface for data
monitoring. Virtual panels may be extended to include new
types of displays and ActiveX controls. A provided SDK
allows the creation of custom controls.
Panels are useful in mimicking the look, feel and operation
of real equipment used by the pilot by presenting the
recorded data via "real-life" controls. The intuitive
interface is especially helpful for users who are not
familiar with the dataMARS and dataSIMS systems.
dataMARS and dataSIMS offer superb post-analysis
capabilities for recorded data. Supported recordings include
those created by dataMARS, dataSIMS and the dataMARS104-II
systems. Recordings made by recorders from other vendors may
also be imported for analysis.
Post-analysis is performed on engineering-unit values
decoded from the recorded data, which are displayed using a
variety of presentation formats, and reported in flexible
reporting formats. Specific events and conditions can be
searched for in the recorded data, and calculations may be
performed on it to extract new information to be displayed
and reported alongside the recorded data. Recorded data may
be exported to other third-party tools, such as Excel™ and
multiple sources are replayed synchronously, based on
recorded time tags. The data may be replayed at various
rates, such as 1:1 and full speed.
from the engineering displays that show recorded
Data Reporting and Exporting
variety of ASCII reports can be generated from the recorded
data. These include engineering-unit values, results of
additional calculations based on monitored data and the raw
data of complete messages. Reports may be generated for
either complete recordings or for selected portions of them.
Report templates may be used to generate multiple reports
for numerous data recordings in a single batch process.
optional conversion tools to convert recorded data to
various third party binary formats.
data may be used in Excel™, MatLab™ and other tools for
dedicated analysis and presentation. Reports may also be
distributed to other interested parties
dataMARS and dataSIMS make it possible to incorporate and
integrate custom data communications channels into the
system in order to utilize its monitoring, display, storage,
post-analysis and database capabilities. They provide you
with a driver (with full source code) that you can easily
modify to receive and transmit custom data. This driver may
be used for the monitoring of custom hardware, custom
RS232/422 protocols, GPS data, analog I/O and more.
data are monitored and simulated alongside standard
protocols (for example, MIL-STD-1553 or ARINC-429), which
re-emphasizes the complete and system-wide approach taken by
the dataMARS and dataSIMS
