Technical Article: Logging CAN Bus Data for Flight Tests - In Pursuit of Sporadic Errors

Commercial airplanes are entering a new era in terms of the growing number of electronic components they contain. The systems, which are becoming increasingly more complex, need to be tested extensively in the laboratory and in flight trials. Data loggers can make an important contribution in debugging and error analysis. However, they must fulfill the stringent technical and regulatory requirements of the aerospace industry.

Vector has over 20 years of experience in the testing, simulation and analysis of individual control modules, networks and distributed systems in the CAN field. This comprehensive know-how was an ideal prerequisite for developing the GL1020FTE Avionic Logger.
