In recent years there has been a shift from proprietary and closed solutions for Flight Test Instrumentation (FTI) networks towards more open standards-based systems using Ethernet technology. iNET-X evolved out of the early TmNS (iNET) definition and aims to provide high performance, network coherency, and ease of setup and management.
iNET-X is a phased integration of networking technologies providing a low-risk, low-cost migration path for airborne systems leading towards a complete solution today. iNET-X ensures high performance and network coherency, provides simplified setup and management, is designed to be future proof and integrates standardized networking technologies without compromising the ruggedization or reliability of the hardware.
