Saab delivers 100th DiRECT CR system

16th February 2012 - 14:45 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab has announced the delivery of its 100th DiRECT CR mission recorder as airborne recording and replay of sensor images become increasingly necessary to helicopter and fixed wing aircraft missions. The DiRECT CR system is a digital recording and replay system for video, audio and data, suitable for both new and legacy airborne platform in military as well as security and police missions.

According to Saab, the DiRECT CR System has been developed to meet the demanding recording requirements to enable operators such as the police, border patrol, surveillance and the military to gain maximum information and experience from their flights. The company said its user base for the system spans the globe from the North American continent to the east of Asia.

DiRECT CR records multiple channels of high quality video, audio and data during hours of flight. Video from sources such as turreted sights, radars, map displays, and hoist supervising cameras is recorded on multiple software-configurable high and standard definition video recording channels. Data is being recorded from ARINC-429 and 1553B busses. The recording drive is hot-swappable. Most users utilise the DiRECT CR’s onboard video replay feature which has powerful replay functions. Onboard replay can take place whilst recording the full complement of recording channels. Ground replay is made possible by Saab’s Ground Replay Station software application that can be run on a Laptop or pc.
