Design and Implementation of a Flight Data Ground Analysis System

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 296)


A flight data ground analysis system achieves the Flight Operational Quality Assurance (FOQA) and flight reproduction. Problems existed in the traditional method such as simple events characterization and not intuitive results. Based on the requirements analysis of the flight event investigation and troubleshooting, a new flight reproduction solution was presented, which integrated table, curve, 3D animation, cockpit view, and aeronautical chart view. Results show that the exceedance events can be positioned precisely, the flight can be reproduced accurately, the pilot’s operation quality can be monitored, and flight safety can be guaranteed.
