dc.description.abstract A real-time microprocessor based airborne data acquisition system is described with emphasis on the real-time control software. The system is being currently used by a wide number of airlines in their jetliners for monitoring aircraft performance during flight and recording such data on what is commonly known as the "black box" recorder. The system was primarily developed for use in the new generation of airliners by Boeing Aircraft Company, namely the Boeing 767 and the Boeing 757. At the time of writing this report however, its use has extended to some European aircraft manufacturers, namely Airbus Industries and Fokker. The entire project was a team effort, especially in the design of the hardware. The author's part in this project was the complete design, development and implementation of the real-time control software, including some involvement at a systems level in the hardware design. en_ZA
