CoPilot 429 is an intuitive, graphical databus analyzer that simplifies the simulation and testing of ARINC 429-based avionics systems. CoPilot 429 is part of the CoPilot System—a comprehensive software environment that interfaces to Ballard's ARINC 429, ARINC 708/453, and MIL-STD-1553 hardware products.
Using CoPilot and a Ballard PCI, cPCI, PCMCIA, USB or ISA ARINC 429 board, you can be transmitting and receiving on ARINC 429 databuses with just a few clicks of the mouse. Then, while the bus is running, you can observe and change data in meaningful engineering units. CoPilot 429 Plus users can define or view information through virtual instruments, strip charts or map displays. They can also expand or customize CoPilot with VBScripts, replay all or portions of monitored data back onto the 429 databus, or review monitored data through CoPilot's powerful and unique software playback capability.
Features built into CoPilot 429 assist you in automatically detecting installed hardware and bus activity, and in building transmit schedules to meet ARINC 429 requirements. With CoPilot 429, there is no need to write software programs in order to access the capabilities built into our new generation of ARINC 429 boards.
