CoPilot 1553 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. A CoPilot 1553 system consists of CoPilot 1553 and a Ballard 1553 interface board.
Using CoPilot 1553 and one or more of Ballard Technology's MIL-STD-1553 boards, users can quickly set up and run Bus Controller schedules, simulate Remote Terminals, and monitor, record, and export bus activity. While communicating with the databus, users can enter and display data in engineering units through simulated flight instruments or tabular displays. Data field and interpreter definitions can be saved to and retrieved from a user-maintained database. Strip chart displays, advanced monitor display features, and CoPilot's software playback mode simplify data discovery. Other features include auto detection of remote terminals, error injection/detection, filtering of data before or after capture, and a moving map display. Ballard's exclusive scripting control allows CoPilot to be customized with user-coded or example scripts. Graphical displays, scripting, and software playback mode are features of CoPilot 1553 Plus.
Project, data, and board configurations may be saved to file and reopened. Example projects and scripts, reference manual, online help, and tutorial guide are included.
