What is CoPilot?
CoPilot is an intuitive, graphical software program that allows you to easily monitor, record, replay, analyze, and simulate avionics bus data. With CoPilot you can interact directly with data on multiple buses using Astronics avionics interface hardware or work with previously recorded data. This advanced program features powerful tools for development, testing, troubleshooting and maintenance of avionics equipment and systems.
CoPilot is the perfect complement to Astronics' comprehensive line of hardware interface products for avionics databuse protocols including MIL-STD-1553, EBR 1553, ARINC 429, ARINC 664, ARINC 708, ARINC 717 and others.
The Ready Solution
Save time and money with CoPilot
CoPilot® is a Windows program that allows you to interact with and generate avionics bus data, without writing your own software. What CoPilot does for you, is to make it simpler to interact with avioncs busses, alleviate the need to write test software, and make it easier for you to get your job done.
Get up and running quickly with CoPilot
From the moment you start CoPilot, you'll be surprised at how easy and intuitive it is to use. Often-used functions are within easy reach in the Office-style ribbon interface and separate tab groups clearly organize the functions for each major avionics protocol. Avionics bus activity is visually represented with the ability to "drill in" by double-clicking elements to view more and more details.
The Ultimate Databus Analyzer
CoPilot sets the standard for performance and flexibility!
With CoPilot, you can easily monitor, record, replay, analyze, and simulate avionics bus data. It's the industry's leading productivity tool for such varied avionics applications as troubleshooting avionics systems, automated testing of new products, rapid prototyping of software for new projects, recording flight test data, and avionics component validation.
CoPilot — Power and Ease of Use
CoPilot combines powerful performance with organization and visualization features that are intuitive and easy to use.
Intuitive Organization and Navigation
The CoPilot program interface provides thoughtful organization of tools and workspaces so you find what you need faster. The intuitive Ribbon-Bar interface minimizes the learning curve for new users and gives you easy one-click access to a comprehensive set of controls.
CoPilot provides comprehensive start, stop, and pause triggering control integrated into the graphical user interface.
Visual Protocol Analysis
The visual representation of the bus allows you to easily see what's going on. Individual icons graphically show the presence of bus activity, as well as error or warning conditions. Double clicks allow you to effortlessly drill down to more information.
CoPilot starts up right where you expect: in analyzer mode already working. You can easily change this behavior and CoPilot will remember your preference on the next startup.
Multiple Protocol Support Including ARINC 717 and EBR 1553
CoPilot supports all major avionics protocols including ARINC 717 and EBR 1553. ARINC 717 support allows you to view, analyze, simulate and record bus activity from an aircraft Digital Flight Data Acquisition Unit or Digital Flight Data Recorder output databus. EBR 1553 (MMSI) capability allows CoPilot to interact with modern aircraft stores systems. Operate as bus controller, remote terminal, and/or bus monitor. Spec mode, switch mode, and link mode are supported.
