Why use Marple?

Marple is offering flight testing tools as a web platform. This means that the software does not need to be installed. Team members only need to create an account to access the data and projects.

Analysing flight test data with Marple

Marple is the central place where all data is stored. This allows for a consistent workflow across the whole team:
- Every engineer can have access to the same data
- Metadata makes the datasets easily searchable
- Results can be shared interactively

Four files that are found using metadata filters and tags, and a search bar

Marple has various plot types to do the analysis of aircraft parameters
- Map plots, giving a primary overview
- Time series, for detailed analysis
- Scatter plots, indicating resonant frequencies and other vibrations
- Frequency plots (FFT)

Read more about the plotting possibilities in our documentation.

Three plot types in Marple for engineers: map plot, scatter plot and frequency plot

A set of premade functions make it easy to do post-processing and calculations, without coding. Functions are part of your project, so you don't have to redefine them again later.

Close collaboration

Lilium presenting how they use Marple

We continuously improve our product by collaborating closely with our customers. Flight test engineers from Lilium and other companies have been giving feedback since our initial versions.

Get your data in Marple

Getting flight test data in to the Marple platform

There are three ways to get your data into Marple. Firstly, files can be uploaded and imported using our plugin system. We support CSV, ULOG, ROS, CAN and other data formats.

The second option is to use our API or Python SDK. This way, datasets can be automatically uploaded to Marple. This eliminates friction in the data processing workflow, making the data available to engineers as soon as the test is done.

If you have your data in InfluxDB, you can directly couple it to Marple. This also allows you to view your data in realtime. Read more about our InfluxDB integration.

Data safety is our primary concern

A vault, keeping your files securely backuped

Flight testing data is sensitive. Marple is therefore designed with security as our top priority. If you choose for Marple Cloud, daily backups taken care of automatically. We also do regular security tests, performed by external experts.

Marple can also be deployed self-managed, giving you total control over the hosting. To learn more about this, get in touch.
