1. A system to generate a waterfall display, the system comprising:
a communication subsystem to receive a stream of high-speed data measurements;
a waterfall generation subsystem to:
receive the stream of high-speed data measurements from the communication subsystem;
identify a plurality of changes in the stream of high-speed data;
select a subset of data measurements from the stream of high-speed data measurements to display on the waterfall display, the subset of data measurements comprising the changes in the high-speed data;
highlight the plurality of changes in the subset of data measurements through a plurality of modifications; and
generate a representation of the subset of data measurements in which changes are highlighted and the subset of data measurements is presented at a rate below a perception threshold of a human operator; and
a display subsystem to receive the representation of the subset of data measurements from the waterfall display subsystem and to display a human-perceptible waterfall display to represent the stream of high-speed data measurements and the plurality of modifications.
