The post flight menu allows the user to check all the information stored during a flight operation. There exist different options to display the telemetry of a certain operation, and they are presented in this section.
Post Flight Panel
When opening the post flight menu, there are a series of options to configure in order to display the tour:
- The autopilot, whose information wants to be played on the tour, has to be selected among the ones that appear on the list on the left side.
- The user here can select the date of the flight that is going to be replayed.
- The speed of the tour can be configured in this option (x1 means normal speed).
- The play button starts the tour.
When clicking the play button, a new autopilot will appear in the right sidebar with the name of the unit plus Offline. As it can be seen in the previous figure, a new Veronte Panel appears on the screen showing the phase changes as they occurred in the real operation.
Regarding the telemetry, all the variables that were in the Telemetry Link during the real flight can be displayed in the tour.
For example, to display the IAS that the aircraft had during the flight played, just select the offline autopilot in the pull-down menu, and the gauge will show the indicated airspeed of that operation.
If a variable was not in the telemetry link during a flight, it can not be later shown in the tour of that flight.
The telemetry generated during an operation is stored in different ways (see section Telemetry). According to how each one of the telemetry variables has been stored (data link, onboard log, user log and fast log) it has to be downloaded in a different way.
The data of the other three type of logs is stored in the SD Card of the air autopilot, so it has to be downloaded to the computer in order to obtain it. To do this, it’s sufficient to open Postflight bar and click on the down-directed arrow, then select the Veronte unit for data downloading and refresh the page in order to choose the flight files to be download (checking the flight date and time).
The bar STR corresponds with the information of the Onboard Log and EVT is for the User Log. Once the file has been downloaded, the bar will turn green and right-clicking over it (SRT or EVT) will allow the user to download a CSV file with that information.
The following two images show a .CSV and a .KML files opened respectively with Microsoft Excel and Google Earth.
