ASHBURN, Va., 2 Oct. 2013.Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the VR-1257 rugged 3U OpenVPX data recorder for demanding intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) applications like radar, sonar, infrared imaging, and sensor data capture in aircraft, ground vehicles and base stations.
The small-form factor data storage engine captures high-volume continuously streaming data without interruption for high-throughput reliable data recording in a deployable 3U VPX COTS system.
The VR-1257 enables system integrators to add data recording for lab development and rugged deployed environments. The VR-1257 is for harsh-environment air- and conduction-cooled applications.
The rugged board has an Intel Core i7 processor and supports system expansion via an XMC/PMC mezzanine site. The mezzanine module interface provides eight lanes of Gen2 PCI Express to support a wide range of high-speed data fabrics such as sFPDP, Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
When combined with Curtiss-Wright's VPX3-FSM 3U VPX Flash Storage Module, the VR-1257 provides a complete secure data recording solution for SWaP-constrained deployed applications. The VPX3-FSM secures critical data stored on its solid-state SATA drives with FIPS 140-2 validated AES-256 bit encryption.
The VPX3-FSM, a 1-inch pitch conduction-cooled solid state storage device, uses high-reliability SLC NAND flash. The FSM can be configured as either four separate SATA drives or as one SATA drive.
