Recorder utilization of data formatting standards enables abundant life-cycle savings, and this is addressed herein. The ARINC Standards cited in this paper’s title (i.e., ARINC 573/717, 767 and 647A) have, in large part, been developed to facilitate Flight Data Recorder (FDR) mandatory data capture requirements. These standards foster important equipment interchangeability or interoperability requirements, and, since they are also applicable to Aircraft Condition Monitoring System (ACMS) recording, critical Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) applications are supported. The Background material includes ARINC 647A Flight Recorder Electronic Documentation (FRED) definitions of 573/717 subframe and 767 frame recording, and “sets the stage” for following topics; important IVHM operations require the ability to continually improve or update recording, and FRED use as an IVHM Interface can indeed foster continual ACMS improvement/maturation. Additionally, the extension of these standards to any avionics controller or system interface lends itself to improved troubleshooting methods. This enhanced use of ARINC Standards is a crucial element of Health Ready Subsystem implementation, being prototyped in the Boeing IVHM Operational Environment.
