The transfer of data on today's aircraft is accomplished by data bus architecture. Data acquisition is the art of extracting data from these busses and converting them to some meaningful units that can then be analyzed. This text is designed to give a working knowledge of data bus technology that allows every engineer to speak intelligently to software design engineers and instrumentation personnel. It also helps every engineer appreciate those personnel who provide data . Data acquisition today is a little more complicated than calibrating voltages for strip chart pens.
