MDR-GT Flight Test Data Recorder


The MDR-GT is an ultra-Fast on-board FTI data recorder designed around a common mainframe and flexible chassis. This common mainframe contains built-in processing functions and high-end interfaces as standard. No extra hardware is required for UDP streaming, telemetry broadcasting, and advanced networking; the latter allowing for the communication of multiple XMA stacks to form a distributed data acquisition system.

The flexible chassis is available in a top and front loading format in which two canisters can be installed. A canister can accept up to five signal modules, and is backward compatible with most signal modules of the MDR including Analogue Input ModulesDigital Input & Bus Interface ModulesVideo Input ModulesHybrid Interface Modules, and Storage Modules. Canisters can also be loaded with storage modules of up to 40TB.
