The paper presents the hardware software solution for sonification of complex networks and systems. The sonification expands the possibilities of an analysis of complex information through using the human hearing. Auditory displays allow reducing the operator’s workload and better detection of specific features and patterns in the data. The proposed sonification complex consists of two main parts. Data source located in the LO ZNIIS generates data that describes current state of a network or complex system, accumulates and redirects it. The parametric sonification layer located in the SUT converts the information into forms suitable for creating new audio environment, and represents the data as relevant timbral classes.
