Is there an Equipment available on A320s that can duplicate the Entire Aircraft panel to a ground based station.To help the Grd staff to observe the Status of the concerned aircraft on ground.
This was a topic spoken about by someone at work last night.
Anyone aware of such a system & any links.

I don't know what the sytem is called but our ACARS reported all engine parameters, hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical readings to the ground at some frequent interval.

It was said that if the first officer's steering tiller was turned out of the detent it would be reported to the chief pilot's office before you landed. (The first officer is not permitted to use nosewheel steering.)

I heard a similar story about a plane that did an uncommanded missed approach instead of making a practice autoland. It flew out to the fix and entered holding. Avionics was, according to the story in ground school, able to dial in and interrogate the system with the active fault, and troubleshoot it from the ground.

I don't know much about this "big brother" stuff, and would like to hear from some who do.

Line maintenance or maintenance control guys would know more about this than I do, but yes, if the aircraft has a major snag (class 1 or 2, something that would show up on the ECAM) in the air, it can identify the fault and radio it to the ground via ACARS.

This is obviously restricted to things that are monitored by the various computers.

When we get into the airplane after its last flight, we print out the post flight report, which would be similar to what's sent via ACARS. Typical stuff might include computer failures and avionics failures. Most components are monitored and will show up on the post flight report.



The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the manufacturer and impossible for the AME.

I've seen in flight reports from ACARS, they are pretty boring and repetative, mostly used for flight performance monitoring, it logs extremly boring numbers such as thrust levels and fuel burn, it calculates the fuel decriment and alot of other important yet meaningless data...

It is automatically transmitted via ACARS to the airline once the aircraft is established in the cruise (normally an hour or so after the TOA).

Im referring to Live Parameters changing constantly on Grd Stn as per the Aircraft in question & not Printouts.
Almost like duplication of Cockpit Display.

I've never seen, nor heard of such a system...
