ANDOVER, Mass. – Mercury Systems Inc. in Andover, Mass., is introducing the RH3480 radiation-tolerant solid-state data recorder (SSDR) for radiation-intensive space and terrestrial applications, including low-earth orbit (LEO) satellites, high-altitude aircraft, missiles, launch vehicles and scientific missions.
Featuring horizontal error correction, industrial-grade flash memory, and a fault-tolerant design, the RH3480 provides long-term data integrity to match the operational life of a satellite or life of a space mission.
"As data from satellites advances in complexity and the sizes of satellite designs become smaller and smaller, we need trusted, compact solutions to store and transmit large amounts of data quickly and efficiently," says Tom Smelker, vice president and general manager of Mercury Data.
"Our line of solid-state data recorders, purpose-built to answer the demand for agile, radiation-tolerant storage devices rugged enough for space applications," Smelker says.
Mercury's latest modular form factor is small and supports a high data capacity. Its low power consumption enables on-orbit sensor digital data processing and storage to transfer data.
