Hi Filipe

I know nothing about OSX and cocoa. I only use free software.
For now, on paparazzi, missions cannot be changed during flight. One of the
reasons is that missions are not interpreted, but compiled before flight. Our
mission language is described in the following file :
and you have several examples in the same directory.
For the telemetry specifications, messages are described in the following file
 : paparazzi2/conf/messages.xml
I think that one of the best way to obtain paparazzi interoperability would be
that your sofware communicate with our using the IVY software bus. It's
available from

Best Regards
