ASHBURN, Va.– Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division announced that its Aerospace Instrumentation business unit, a leading supplier of flight test instrumentation (FTI) solutions, has introduced the industry’s highest performance network data recorder.

The new nREC-7000-1 can store data at very high sustained speeds, with support for 1,000 Megabytes per second (MBps) data rates over each of its four 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports. With the ability to capture FTI data at sustained full-line-rates, the nREC-7000 supports simultaneous data recording of multiple data formats such as DARv3, PCAP, IRIG-106 Chapter 10/11 , and NFS.

This intelligent, network-based IP packet recorder and file server is designed for use with Aerospace Flight Test data acquisition units (DAUs), high-speed video cameras, and multiplexers. It can be used either as standalone or as part of a complete Curtiss-Wright FTI system solution.

The nREC-7000-1 has a sustained record rate of up to 1,800 MBps. Captured data is stored in dual hot swappable RMM cartridges, supporting up to 12 TB of data per recorder unit. The recorder’s I/O includes two 10GBASE-SR ports and two 1000BASE-T ports.

Curtiss-Wright provides FTI system solutions that integrate with data acquisition and recording systems. The nREC-7000-1 can be rapidly integrated with Curtiss-Wright’s industry-leading range of Ethernet enabled FTI products – including the NSW-16GT-1 10GbE Network Switch, and DAUs – to develop a fully integrated system solution.
