A description is given of the base ten systems m-das ruggedised portable data acquisition unit designed to provide an intelligent compact data analysis and recording system for applications including field test of vehicles. The microprocessor controlled unit can be programmed to process the incoming data to suit a variety of applications. The multichannel unit can be reprogrammed in the field and is designed to accept both analogue and digital data. An integral magnetic-tape cassette or cartridge unit records the processed data and also provides a replay facility. For in-vehicle automotive tests, it is possible to carry out recording of all types of performance and operational test data actually in the vehicle whether it is a car, bus or truck. Some of the other possible applications are marine pipeline installations, liquid flow, environmental monitoring, and seismic and meteorological data acquisition. /TRRL/
