Remove the Risk From Sensor Data Recording With 3D Flexibility

With the proliferation of new sensors available on the market, data recording and removable storage requirements are on the rise. An increasing number of I/O is employed on ISR and EW platforms and these sensors are generating large amounts of data that often need to be protected at-rest. In the past designers would build a system to spec but often over the course of the program those requirements would change. These changes frequently include the type of I/O that needs to be captured, the amount of storage capacity needed, or the type of encryption required. Modifying these systems to fit the changing requirements is costly and time consuming, delaying projects and pushing them over budget. A single system that could change with your program requirements could help curb the budgeting and scheduling risk that changing requirements inflict.  

The new white paper Mitigate Program Risk with a Flexible Data Recording and Storage System discusses a system that is flexible in removable storage, encryption and I/O and would therefore lower program risk while future proofing your program.  

3D Sensor Data Recorder Flexibility 

  • Scalable, removable storage: Based on industry standard 2.5" SD, the CNS4 available capacity will grow, providing design flexibility and low obsolescence risk 
  • Flexible I/O: With four built-in GbE ports and a 3U VPX slot, the CNS4 can change with changing I/O requirements  
  • Data Protection: Flexible encryption means you can use the CNS4 across multiple programs and platforms.  

Due to its flexibility, the CNS4 can be used as the base recording technology across a range of platforms and/or programs for applications such as: 

  • Sensor data recording
  • Rugged video recording
  • sFPDP or Fiber Channel recorder
  • Encrypted network attached storage 
  • Raw data storage
  • Data playback

Additional information on how the CNS4 as a sensor data recorder can lower your program risk and future proof your program is discussed in the white paper as well as more information on the flexible configuration options available.
