DAAAC - Data Acquisition Software

Voss Scientific provides a complete software solution that allows scientists and engineers to collect valuable experimental data, without the need to write any code. Systems with as few as one or up to hundreds of digitizer channels can be up and running in a matter of hours, collecting data and reducing it to physical quantities of interest.

Our software goes beyond simple data acquisition, by providing remote instrument control, full signal path documentation, database archival, automated data reduction, and manual analysis support in a fully integrated package.

DAAAC is a standard at major national DOE and DoD Laboratories.

Why is DAAAC Unique?

DAAAC is the only software package specifically designed for single-shot, high-value data acquisition applications. Designed by experimental scientists and developed by a team of hardware and software engineers, DAAAC software includes nearly 30 years of ongoing refinement, driven by invaluable customer input and field testing. DAAAC supports key applications including conventional explosives, nuclear weapons safety testing, pulsed power, high power microwave, and pulsed laser directed energy applications.

As a solutions partner with Keysight Technologies and Tektronix systems integrator, Voss Scientific offers complete hardware / software integration solutions to the most difficult scientific problems. We provide turn-key, DAAAC-based systems that include custom software, sensors, recorders, signal path components, computers, shielded enclosures, calibration fixtures, training, and on-site test support.

DAAAC Features

Analyze module

Its scalable system architecture allows DAAAC to operate on configurations as simple as a single laptop, or as complex as a network of workstations with over a thousand channels. DAAAC supports a variety of instruments including oscilloscopes / digitizers, spectrum analyzers, network analyzers, cameras, spectrometers, delay generators, counters, and positioners.

Graphical interfaces allow the user to easily manage acquisition and signal path hardware.

Test parameters and hardware configurations are automatically linked to acquired data. Users have the ability to quickly reload previously used experimental configurations. High system reliability is achieved through full database archival, redundant data storage, and extensive error handling for hardware faults.
