21 November 1996 High-speed solid state recorder for airborne recce

Over ten years ago, when ATARS architecture and components were selected to operate at 200 feet at 600 knots, high-end digital tape recorders were the only solution for recording digital imagery for various tactical airborne reconnaissance platforms. But now an all solid-state solution for high speed recording has evolved. High-speed Solid State Recorder (HSSR), which is described in this paper. Trade-offs made during HSSR development are discussed showing how this new product's parameters were selected. Convergence of existing, Fairchild-proven, solid-state mass memory product technologies with availability of commercially driven, high- density FLASH memory chips produced this needed COTS solution to recording imagery or other high-speed digital data in harsh environments, typical of military fighter aircraft.
