iSAFT 1553 Simulator/Recorder Software


The iSAFT 1553 Simulator/Recorder Software package is a modern, powerful graphical user interface specifically designed for MIL-STD-1553 users from the space sector. It supports all the extensions defined by the European Space Agency (ESA) to the standard MilBus protocol (see www.ecss.nl) and it provides the required interfaces for seamless connection to space mission AIT testbeds (EDEN, CCSDS CnC, Python, C++, etc.).

“The iSAFT 1553 software is fully compatible and can be used in combination

with any 1553 hardware module from Alta Data Technologies (AltaDT).”


The iSAFT 1553 Simulator/Recorder Software package includes:

  • Modern Graphical User Interface for complete local operation (Windows 10)
  • Packet Editors supporting “send/receive datablocks” operations through the local MMI (BC Simulator)
  • GUI for operating specific configurations (simulation, recording, traffic generation)
  • Boards and channels management / configuration application
  • Dual function operation BC and BM or multiple RTs (1-31) and BM simultaneously per channel.
  • BC and RT simulation fully compliant with MIL-STD-1553B Notice II & IV
  • Support of ECSS-E-ST-50-13C services during BC and RT simulation (time distribution, communication synchronization, get/set data, data block transfer and terminal management services)
  • Full error injection and detection capabilities (at MIL-STD-1553B or ECSS-E-ST-50-13C services level)
  • Recording function of received / transmitted packets based on Wireshark Protocol Analyser
  • Wireshark Plug-Ins for decoding of MIL-STD-1553 Messages and ECSS-E-ST-50-13C Services’ Messages.
  • Graphical tools for recordings management, searching and filtering
  • Filters configuration application, selective tracing (filtering) support for various protocols and packet patterns
  • Programmable transmission triggers per channel, independent triggers for start/stop of capture
  • Statistics utilities, real-time statistics display per channel, statistics for ECSS-E-ST-50-13C services
  • Traffic logs export to XML, PostScript®, CSV, or plain text
  • Remote Access APIs in C++, Python, Java (Windows / Linux)
