Two Windows-based software packages designed for aerobatic contest scoring are available direct from their authors. Each includes the FairPlay System as approved by CIVA for use at World and Continental championships.
Aerobatic Contest Results Organiser
Used continuously by CIVA since 2007, ACRO provides a complete solution for scoring, results and web publication at national and international power and glider aerobatic events. The sofware author is Nick Buckenham, CIVA President and UK delegate.
ACRO offers great reporting flexibility for print-to-paper and output for spreadsheets, single/multi programme internet results with web index page creation; integrated ftp upload for all contest web output to any URI; pilots internet Score Sheets with mini sequence diagrams; integral photo handling linked to an online bi-directional photo archive; comprehensive FPS judging analysis; international team flags; import of sequence K-factors and figure data directly from OpenAero and Visio Aresti; an extensive on-screen Help system directly linked to each form ... in fact everything you could ask for to support club, national and international aerobatic events at all levels using either Raw or FPS processed scores.
ACRO is Microsoft .NET software and is compatible with all versions of Windows™
Aerobatic Contest Managing System
Written by French author Michel Dupont, ACMS includes CIVA's FPS statistical process with Ranking Index analysis provided via a range of histograms. The software implements web output to any target internet URI, with web pages built from "templates" together with a "script" language which can change their appearance without having to modify the software.
ACMS can import files directly from OpenAero, and also supports input from remote touch pads; Judges grades are all forwarded via a local network to the Chief Judge so that they can be checked for consistency before the sequence is validated, the output subsequently being transmitted by G3/G4 to a base station for immediate display of the results.
The software is available in English and French, and may be translated into other languages using an integrated tool.
