Paper Abstract

It is customary for Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) to be fitted with a number of sensor systems used in multiple mission roles. Traditionally the sensors found onboard MPA are accompanied with a data recorder system that has been configured with a sensor unique analogue interface. In most cases the recorders themselves are of either a commercial or instrumentation standard. The interfaces to the sensor systems are what make the recorder unique and in many cases limited in use. It is not uncommon for a single aircraft to have up to a half-dozen different sensor types, along with a half-dozen of these unique recorder systems to support them. Each of these exclusive systems naturally has a corresponding ground replay system, as well as, distinctive media and the related support infrastructure to support them.
