Air Accident Investigation Programs - FDRV and AAIT 975563
Two different types of software developed for aircraft safety analysis are described. The Flight Data Recorder Visualiser (FDRV) has been developed to allow interactive, 3D visualisation of FDR/QAR data on low-cost PC platforms. The Air Accident Investigation Tool (AAIT) allows simplified computer-reconstruction of air accidents. Both programs have been successfully applied to air accident/incident investigations. The background, applications and future developments of these programs is outlined in this paper.
