  5. Data Acquisition Error Budget Analysis Tools

    SBC: Sysense Incorporated            Topic: AF04298

    SySense is developing an error budget analysis tool. The goal is to provide the Digital Acquisition System (DAS) designer the ability to draw upon past experience with DAS design and instruments in order to predict the error in a flight test experiment a priori. Using this system, the designer may perform trade studies to enhance the DAS design in order to meet program requirements.
