RADA is unveiling the latest mission data recorder model developed by the company and selected to equip the first line fighters – the Video Recorder & Data Server System (VRDS), introducing cutting edge approach to video and and mass-storage management onboard combat aerial platforms. RADA’s VRDS has been accepted as the sole source for flight recorders for the vast majority of the aircraft. The systems are currently being integrated on F-15 models A/B/C/D/I, F-16 models C/D/I, C-130, T-6, and more. Production deliveries will begin later this year. The new system has more memory capacity, more processing power, Gigabit Ethernet channels support and enhanced functionality. With more powerful processing supporting highly efficient video compression (MPEG-4/H.264), VRDS also supports a wide range of services beyond mission . These include functions of an avionic Data Server and the traditional Data Transfer Equipment (DTE). The system also supports data encryption provisions, employing a data cassette with autonomous secure erase capabilities.
