Ampex introduces TuffServ 40 airborne recorder
Ampex Data Systems has unveiled the newest addition to its TuffServ ruggedised ultra compact airborne recorder family, the TuffServ 40 (TS 40). Ampex made the announcement in a 16 January 2012 company statement.
At just 1.8" H x 3.5" W x 6.25" D and weighing 1.4 lbs, the TS 40 is the smallest, lightest and most power-frugal member of the TuffServ family. The system is specifically designed for demanding applications such as tactical Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) where size and payload weight are at a premium. Using a fixed solid-state storage module, the TS 40 provides up to 160GB of memory with larger capacities available in the future.
According to the company, the standard system is delivered with a modern Linux system, providing a wide range of network services out of the box, including NFS and Samba for Windows SMB/CIFS networks, FTP and iSCSI.
