How New Technologies Improve Wideband Signal and Data Recorder Performance

by Rodger Hosking, Vice President, Pentek

Virtually all military ground, sea and airborne platforms rely on wideband signal and data recorders for surveillance, interception, and monitoring of signals from sensors. Communication, radar, and telemetry systems often require recording functions for storing signals of interest or logging traffic during operational missions. Designers of these systems are always looking for critical recorder components that exploit new technologies to boost performance.

These include solid state drives, higher resolution data converters, faster serial interfaces, and advanced RAID controllers. Integration of these components to maximize overall performance requires not only careful hardware and software design, but also qualification and testing to guarantee loss-free recordings under worst-case operating conditions.

Pentek's Talon® RTX 2766

Each day, the already overwhelming glut of signals vital to government and military operations grows to challenge the neverending race for information dominance in SIGINT, ELINT and warfighting. Gaining this advantage can significantly improve the outcome of any conflict, ranging from a theater of war operation to a homeland security initiative. Often, the amount of information and the number different signal channels overwhelms the real-time analysis and decision-making capacity of the acquisition platform, regardless of whether it's a small unmanned vehicle, a fighter jet, or even a battleship. Recording this information allows it to be reviewed and forwarded to an analysis facility as required.
