Mercury Computer Systems wins ISR award
Mercury Computer Systems has announced that it has received a contract from a leading defense prime contractor to provide an advanced solid state data recorder for the aggregation and storage of sensor data from airborne ISR applications. The company made the announcement in a 17 May, 2012 statement.
According to the company, the customer ‘needed a technology upgrade that could manage the greatly expanded data streams generated by a new generation of sensors’.
Mercury said its solution combines the high density capacity Digital Storage Unit (DSU) with a controller function built to the 3U OpenVPX standard. The DSU uses an array of commercially available Solid State Disk (SSD) components configured within a compact, rugged, deployable enclosure, while the controller supports flexible protocol conversions as part of the data recording process.
