Abstract
Modern flight line engineers are faced with a large variety of sensor configurations. Different types of vehicles, and sometimes even different individual vehicles of the same type, have widely varying sensor loadouts. With current Instrumentation Support Systems (ISSs), each sensor configuration must be manually described to the ISS. This process is tedious, time consuming, and error prone. Nomadics proposes to design and build a Labeling, Interrogation, and Loading System (LILS) that is composed of two logical components: a Labeler (software that runs on a PocketPC−based PDA and can be used to retrieve, modify, and store TEDS in native IEEE 1451 transducers or in SITEDS) and Selector (software that runs on 32-bit Windows™ operating systems and is used to collect sensor information from the labeler into a large database of sensors, allow selection of subsets of sensors, and store those subsets into ISS systems), which combines the Interrogator and Loader components from Phase 1. Phase II will involve creation of production-ready versions of both components of LILS. This will allow us to create a functional end-to-end system that works with currently available IEEE 1451 sensors.
