Net Centric Data Recorder


The NCDR is a rugged network centric digital unit (NCDU) with a detachable solid-state memory cartridge. Originally developed for airborne applications, this tough 3.2 kg recorder-processor can monitor and record video and audio directly from their sources, while monitoring up to three data channels (via MuxBus). The system manages data transfer and mass storage functions to enable efficient playback while recording. The system uses a standard USB interface and can store up to 128 gigabytes of data. In parallel with its digital recording ability, NCDR can be used as a file server, flexibly augmenting on-board digital systems by providing increased memory capacity. RADA is also offering the NCDR in a land-based application, dubbed ‘Mission Witness‘.
