5 Considerations for Designing Successful High-Channel-Count Systems

If you are considering performing tests and acquiring data from a complex, large structure, like a space capsule or aircraft, then you will most likely acquire data from a high-channel count system that has hundreds or even thousands of acquisition channels. A solution designed for less than a hundred channels will not just easily scale by simply adding more channels. There are many considerations beyond just adding more channels when designing, testing, and deploying successful high-channel-count systems. Let’s look at five best practices that you will consider during the design phase of the project and take advantage of throughout the life of the test system.

5 Mistakes in Aerospace and Defense Test System Design

Aerospace and defense test is a complicated business. A lot goes into ensuring helicopters stay in the air, spacecraft stay pressurized, and passenger airplanes land safely every time. It’s a business full of complex elements—custom test fixtures, multiple technical compliance guidelines, and a ton of customer requirements. After more than two decades of designing hundreds of aerospace and defense test systems at G Systems, we have learned a thing or two about what it takes to design a successful mission-critical system… and seen some key design mistakes that nearly guarantee failure when designing aerospace and defense applications.

Refueling in Flight

Imagine you’re testing a system that has a long startup time, and you find a small change that needs to be made. Now you have to make the software change, rebuild the executable, shut down the application, deploy the new executable, and go through the long startup period again. What a waste of time!!! Wouldn’t it be great if you could avoid having to stop and restart the entire application? It would be like refueling in flight. Well, you can…!
