DAYTON, Ohio, 20 Sept. 2009. Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems in Dayton, Ohio, is introducing the Vortex SDR1X fixed-featured commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) streaming mass storagedata recorder system for sensor-to-processor streaming data applications in demanding environments.

The Vortex SDR1X for SIGINT/ELINTrugged systems combines a 3U controller with a reliable, scalable data storage subsystem. This rackmount RAID data recorder can record a 10 Gigabit Ethernet data signal at rates as fast as 800 megabytes per second.

The Vortex SDR1X enables high-volume, continuous streaming recording of 10 GbE data. Other Vortex SDR products support the recording of Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and Serial FPDP (sFPDP) protocols at line rates. Options include a 3U SBOD with 16 Fibre Channel (FC) disks, the compact 2U RAID that houses 12 SATA or SAS disks, and the 4U RAID that supports as many as 48 SATA or SAS disks. For extreme applications requiring rugged data storage, the Vortex SANbric system supports rotating FC disks.

The Vortex SDR1X speeds the integration of high-speed data recording and data logging capabilities into subsystems for instrumentation recording, mission recording, signals intelligence (SIGINT), and electronic intelligence (ELINT) recording applications.

The system's flexible mass storage design enables system integrators to add one or more Vortex SBOD or RAID storage systems as needed for their application's required recording duration.
