EMPFR Enhanced Multi Purpose Flight Recorder
Current and anticipated FAA and EUROCAE requirements for flight recorders could be a considerable burden to your fleet and your business. A combined solution for the future also provides operational benefits today.
Curtiss-Wright's EMPFR is packaged as a compact unit ideal for the rotary-wing or small/medium aircraft market. Importantly, this compact unit may be attached directly to the airframe without the need for bulky equipment racks or anti-vibration mounts, thus permitting optimum aircraft performance to be attained for lower operating costs. On-aircraft download is achieved in less than two minutes and can be networked directly to a remote operational base for remote diagnostics and fault reporting.
Based on state-of-the-art solid-state memory systems, the EMPFR features also include 4-channel voice recording for 120 minutes (one wide band, 3 narrow band audio channels), a rotor tachometer interface, 25 hours of flight data recording at 512 words/second and 2 hours of data-link recording (CPDLC). Higher FDR data rates up to 1,024 words/second are available, making EMPFR ideal for general aviation or flight test recording. Information retrieval is made via a 10/100MB Fast Ethernet interface directly to a portable transfer device or analysis PC using standard network hardware and protocols, alternatively, connection may be made to transfer FDR data via an aircraft Wireless Data Link (WDL). The EMPFR exceeds the requirements of FAA, EUROCAE, and EASA requirements ED -112, ETSO -C123b and ETSO -C124b, and is qualified to RTCA/DO -160F and designed in accordance with RTCA/DO -178B and RTCA/DO -254.
