As Flight Test Engineers, we always operate to a set of requirements. These requirements define our scope, hazard levels, mitigation techniques, etc. with the help of the Flight Test Instrumentation Engineers (FTIE) to visualize and show compliance (or not) to said requirements. The FTIE also designs measurement components to build confidence in reliability, helping mitigate risks and limitations associated with the test. But what do FTIEs do with our requests? This paper will pull back the curtain on the FTIE as part of a flight test team. We will focus on the proper selection of tools and equipment that help understand the difference between test and safety parameters and how to organize those on a display for clear observation. READ NOW
