Key Features

The Sentry Cockpit Voice & Flight Data Recorder (CVFDR) was designed by combining the standard features of  existing CVFDRs with a new approach to capturing and protecting flight data creating the foremost CVFDR of the future. Using a patent-pending  innovative memory insulation  technique Sentry offers small size,  lower weight, and less power consumption than traditional CVFDRs in a modular and flexible architecture.  The “software free” recorder allows for aircraft specific configurations as well as the addition of creative and useful expansion capabilities.

Available in titanium, Sentry meets or exceed all requirements of ED-112A as well as qualification to DO-160G environmental and power requirements. The rugged enclosure is ideal for airborne operational environments including commercial and military  fixed-wing and rotary wing aircraft and can be mounted in any attitude.

SENTRY includes a range of aircraft  interfaces including:

  • ARINC-717 and ARINC-429  (auto detection)
  • Ethernet
  • RS-422/485
  • Analog and discrete sensor inputs
  • Data Link recording
  • Four high or low fidelity audio  channels (configurable)
  • Rotor speed input

Expansion of Sentry’s capabilities include the acquisition modules designed for the FDS Modular Acquisition Unit (MAU).

The modules convert Sentry into a Data Acquisition and Crash Recorder System and more.
