Summary
Abstract: The Camex-4 DC-8 Information Collection and Transmission System
(ICATS) is designed to:

1) interface and process avionics and environmental paramaters from
the Navigational Management Syste, GPS, Central Air Data Computer,
Embedded GPS/INS, and analog voltage sources from aircraft and
experimenters,

2) Furnish engineering unit values of selected parameters and computed
functions for real-time video display, and archive ASCII data at
experimenter stations,

3) Archive engineering unit values of 'Appendix A' (to the ICATS
document included with dataset documentation) on data storage for post
flight retrieval.
