System FDS (Flight Data Service)
The FDS Flight Data Service System is a PC oriented data replay and analysis system developed to give users the greatest level of flexibility and configurability possible. The system is designed to make flight data replay and analysis easier and is dedicated to improving flight safety and increasing economic results. FDS has nine years of constant development and improvement behind it in order to achieve a productive replay and analysis system for flight data supervisors. The system is easy to operate. All functions are menu selected with on-screen help.
FDS system is the most powerful and flexible PC computer based flight data processing avionics software package on the market.

Automatic analyses
Powerful and flexible Automatic Analysis System (based on predefined rules) which can be fully redesigned and modified by your staff using an easy to learn and easy to operate context editor. You can follow events during the flight, as well as make computations related to flight progress. New knowledge about the aircraft, the engine or flight requirements may at once be entered into the system.
We can also offer you ready to use and certified predefined rules for automatic analysis for the following aircraft: ATR-72, A-300, B-737, B-767, Tu-134A, Tu-154M, Tu-204, Il-62M, Il-76, PZL Mielec, An-28, Skytruck and the PZL Swidnik made helicopter "Sokol". Other sets are available according to customer requirements.
Manual examination of flight data
Manual examination of data as a function of time graphical and numerical form as well as the correlation of two different data channels. 3D reconstruction of path and aircraft attitude are also available.
Export data to external software system
FDS can collect data records and transfer them to the performance monitoring and analyzing software. FDS supports the following systems: SAGE (by G&E), APM (by Boeing), ECM II and ECM IV (P&W P&W Canada).
Supporting Flight Data Base for Windows
All results of automatic analyses can be transmitted to the another ATM product - Flight Data Base for Windows (WinFDB).FDB is a tool for statistical analysis and trend monitoring of analysis records. FDB represents the new generation of ATM software systems - working under MS Windows.
