Fortress 757 Multi Purpose Flight Recorder
Curtiss-Wright has been manufacturing crash protected recorders since 1957, was the first to bring a combined cockpit voice/flight data recorder (CVR/FDR) to market in 1986 and the first to obtain RTCA-DO-178 approval for solid state recorders. Today, we manufacture the most flexible, compact and lightweight ED-112A compliant recorders available.
Fortress 757 provides a complete aircraft recording solution supporting parametric flight data at rates of 64/128/256/512/1024/2048/4096 words-per-second for a minimum of 25 hours, 4 channels of cockpit voice recording, CPDLC recording, image recording and cockpit display recording each for 2 hours minimum.
Fortress 757 is designed in accordance with RTCA/DO-178C and RTCA/DO-254. It meets all current and anticipated FAA and EUROCAE requirements and has a 90 day ultrasonic locator beacon (ULB), certified to TSO-C121b. The core memory is expandable to support up to EUROCAE class 6 recorder requirements for 25 hours recording capacity.
Fortress 757 attaches directly to an airframe to eliminate the need for heavy mounts and easily integrates with other systems to provide additional functionality such as
- High speed (<45 seconds) and license free flight data download at the gate via a Gigabit Ethernet link
- Reach-back capability for FOQA/FDM/FDAP Aircraft Performance and Engine Condition Trend monitoring programs
- Enhanced EMC/Lightning protection for high reliability – especially on composite aircraft
- 24/7 support line and AOG service
The Fortress 757 is supported by dedicated recorder independent power supply (RIPS), cockpit area microphone (CAM), cockpit area camera (CAC) and cockpit control unit (CCU). Supporting dual recorder installations, the CCU enables data and image distribution to two installed Fortress 757 recorders.
