A 16- bit microprocessor based system has been designed and developed for automatic flow field pressure survey and force measurements in the low speed wind tunnel at the Indian Institute of Science. The instrumentation sub systems that are required for the above measurements under the processor control, the system processor or unit, interfaces to standard peripherals, future expansion provisions and communication channel to other computer systems have all been developed in- house. Software has been designed to provide a powerful friendly and reconfigurable integrated integrated instrumentation. The software also ensures POAL time data acquision. On-line 'pre-processing and storage of the data on a floppy. Software has also been developed on an inexpensive PC for the data presentation in color graphics. The design, development and implementation details, of the system have been presented in this paper.
