IRIG 106 Sample Data Files


The data files below are samples of actual recorded Chapter 10 data. Be warned, though, that in general they provide examples of varying degrees of Chapter 10 compliance. See the summary page for each data file for further descriptions and notes.

Downloading a Sample Data File

Data file download is password protected to prevent web crawlers from bogging down the server and consuming all my bandwidth. Just drop a note to bob (at) and I'll be happy to send you the username and password.

Data File Summary Generation

Data file summary information was automatically generated (with just a few hand edits) using a Python script. This Python script uses the Py106 Python library which uses the IRIG106.DLL written in C for maximum performance. Both Py106 and the DLL are available in the open source library.

Submitting a Sample Data File

Data files can be submitted for inclusion in this list. Please limit the size of submitted files to something reasonable. A 1 GB file isn't required to demonstrate four channels of 1553. Try to limit your submissions to only those data files that uniquely demonstrate some aspect of IRIG 106. Don't submit ten data files that basically have the same kind of data.

When submitting a file, be prepared to provide as much of the following information as possible:

  • Data File Summary Description
  • Recorder Vendor
  • Recorder Type
  • Recorder Firmware rev
  • Chapter 10 Version (as reported in the setup record CSDW)
  • Chapter 9 Version (as reported in the TMATS G\106 field)
  • Per Channel Description (Ch 10 = F-16 A-MUX SKU 6, etc.)
  • Known issues (e.g. errors reported by a validator)
  • Releasability restrictions
  • Creation Date
  • Point of Contact

To submit a file do the following:

  1. Download the Readme Template and fill in as much information as possible.
  2. Create a ZIP file with the readme text file and the data file(s).
  3. Upload the ZIP file via ftp to The Username is “ftpdata” and the Password is “ftpdata”. For security, once you upload a file you will not be able to download again via ftp. You'll need to go through this web page. If you need an FTP client, I recommend FileZilla.
  4. Send an email to bob (at) to let me know you have a file ready for sharing. I'll review it, write up a summary web page, and make it available.
