Mission Recorder With Secure Data Storage for Utility Helicopter
April 17, 2020Download PDF
Gathering and analyzing mission data onboard a utility helicopter requires secure data recording and storage. Due to a long-standing relationship, a large systems integrator came to Curtiss-Wright to request information for a mission recording solution for a medium utility helicopter that required live record, view, and playback capabilities, while securely storing data in a terabyte of encrypted networked storage.
To protect the space constrained helicopter’s sensitive, mission critical information, the system requirements included SWaP-optimization and AES-256 bit data-at-rest (DAR) encryption.
During a number of meetings that included on-site visits, Curtiss-Wright worked with the system integrator to develop a solution that could provide live-view mission data while simultaneously exporting the data to a separate secure network-attached-storage (NAS) device. A unique solution aligned with the program requirements was developed by combining the video management capabilities of the VRDV7000 video recorder with the encryption capabilities of the DTS1 CSfC NAS.
