STARS (Sensor Test & Replay System) is an affordable and powerful Flight Data Recorder (FDR) system developed specifically for flight data download, decompression, replay and aircraft sensor calibration system. It is purpose designed to interface with many of the world’s most popular FDRs.
STARS runs on Windows XP/Vista/Win 7 PC, Laptops & PC Tablets and canbe used to download the FDR using the MPI (Multi Purpose Interface) . STARS then decompresses the raw data from the FDR file into engineering units for reporting and graphing, including flight path reconstruction and primary flight display. The Operator can create specific engineering reports using relevant parameters to a report and set the logic rules for specific parameters selected.
Key Functions: STARS Flight Data Recorder
MPI (Multi Purpose Interface)
STARS interfaces directly via a PC peripheral interface cable called the Multi Purpose Interface. The MPI device interfaces with all L3 and Honeywell solid state FDRs and provides seamless data download and decompression of L3 FA2100, F1000 Honeywell SSFDR and uQAR data files using the STARS software. The FDR connects to the PC through the MPI interface cable via the USB interface cable. This MPI device is the communications device which controls the flight recorder download and monitor functions for data file transfer from the Flight recorder ready to import into STARS.
Definition Aircraft Files
The STARS software requires a definition file to be created to interpret the FDAU for Aircraft parameter recognition. Each database comes at an additional cost depending on the FDAU data frame. All Aircraft documentation and maintenance specs are required to create the database. STARS also provides users with the ability to produce their own definition files. Customer training can be delivered either at our facility in Melbourne or remotely by Webex.
There is the option to calibrate aircraft sensors for adjustment and alignment if they are not functioning correctly when connected directly to the FDR.
