ASHBURN, Va. – The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the nREC-700 miniature data recorder for flight test, instrumentation, and monitoring applications.
The compact standalone network recorder is designed for size, weight, and power (SWaP)-constrained commercial and military aircraft, and can store as much as 1 terabyte of data using CFexpress media, and features dual Gigabit Ethernet ports for acquisition of Ethernet traffic.
The SWaP-constrained data recorder supports open standards-based cameras and data-acquisition units, and can acquire several data types, including IRIG-106 Chapter 10/11, Chapters 21 - 26 (TmNS), DARv3, PCAP, or any other Ethernet protocols.
The data recorder weighs 1.5 pounds and measures 3.13 by 2.63 by 3.13 inches, and can fuanction as a stand-alone unit or installed as part of a data-acquisition unit stack.
The rugged nREC-700 records flight test instrumentation data on a removable CompactFlash Express (CFexpress) media card that works in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius. Users can download data in-situ using the recorder's Gigabit Ethernet ports, or at the ground station using a download adaptor for the CFexpress card.
With record rates typically exceeding 1 gigabit per second, the nREC-700 acquires data as Chapter 11, DARv3, or other formats native to input traffic.
It supports the IEEE-1588 v1/v2 precision time protocol with an overhead module that also provides single-point programming at either of its two Gigabit Ethernet ports via Curtiss-Wright's TTCWare setup and configuration software or a web interface. Support for programming via a meta-data-language (MDL) will be announced soon.
