In response to customer demands for a small yet powerful, flight-capable data acquisition system with large storage capacities, DSPCon, Inc., a leading, global supplier of dynamic data acquisition, analysis, archiving and recording solutions for high-value military, aerospace and rotating machinery applications, has launched the BroadFlex-3800[TM] series of ELINT and COMINT data recorders.
Specifically designed with one of the smallest footprints of any fight-capable data recorder on the market today, the BroadFlex-3800 series represents an ideal, compact solution for a wide variety of airborne and shipboard applications. Capable of handling a broad range of intermediate frequency (IF) and radar signals at high speeds and high volume, the BroadFlex-3800 can accommodate up to 32 intermediate frequency analog signals which can be recorded to two, high-density, ultra-compact JBOD storage units. Post flight data acquisition download of stored data is also easily accomplished due to a powerful, PC-based analyzer that allows the operator to search for and selectively archive data.
“Half the size…half the cost…half the power consumption – those were the design principles that guided our development of this next generation recording solution,” said Al Brower, president and chief executive officer of DSPCon, Inc. “With one of the smallest footprints of any flight-capable data recorder on the market today, along with one of the best price/performance ratios in the business, the BroadFlex-3800 is an ideal solution for UAV’s, submarines, small aircraft and other airborne and shipboard applications where available real estate is at a premium.
