AirStor™: A New Line of Rugged Network Data Recorders

L-3 Telemetry & RF Products

Delivering higher performance and a lower price than ever before possible in an airborne environment, AirStor, a line of high-capacity, high-speed rugged network of data recorders, has been introdcued by  L-3 Telemetry-East (L-3 TE). The use of more numerous sensors, higher-speed data buses, and additional video streams is creating increased data flows in modern aircraft flight-test programs.

Airborne Data Recording


Setting new standards in data rate and low cost-per-terabyte data recording and storage, AirStor provides up to 12 terabytes of storage capacity and a 4 Gbps data rate available in a rugged 3U rackmount chassis. Specifically  designed for operation in airborne environments, including temperatures of -200C to +700C, altitudes of up to 85,000 feet and the shock and vibration of fixed or rotary-wing aircraft, AirStor also offers Fibre Channel, 10 gigabit, 1 gigabit, or 10/100 Ethernet inputs along with various redundancy options to protect critical flight test data. AirStor data recorders can be combined with L-3’s AirDAS, NetDAS, and  IntelliBus data acquisition products, as well as with the Vista software suite, creating a complete data acquisition, storage, and management solution.  A variety of encryption options are available with appropriate government approvals.
