I am not sure how to answer that. I am still coming up to speed on how the chapter 10 data is stored and the difference between the absolute and relative time and how the 1553 message is sampled.
I am now expecting my data to look like this (assuming a full date). I am going to be using mfcsvread.
of course data2 would have a different time stamp and a different sensor. I would then use interp1 with the datenum serial values of data1.time and data2.time to ultimately create a data1.sensorB that is just an interpolated value. So would the serial value of datenum support the 1ms resolution of my data2.time values?
