Paper presents the possibilities of computer-based data recording system, constructed and maintained in the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) Division for Avionics, used among others to manage the operational readiness of the integrated communication system ZSŁ. It was shown that the data collected in the database can be used to determine and evaluate operational parameters, including reliability and operational readiness, which is one of the necessary element when it comes to an effective operation of the ZSŁ system, built on board Polish Armed Forces helicopters.
