The VRAMS combines “four boxes in one” to provide digital map set (DMS), digital video recorder (DVR) and data transfer module (DTM) functionality, plus avionics status panel (ASP) monitoring and reporting. The VRAMS comprises four LRUs: digital map generation and processing, as well as DVR functionality (video, audio, 1553 and avionics discrete acquisition and playback), occur within the VP. Typically located in the aircraft’s avionics bay and housing a local PRMM for maintenance data recording/reporting, the unit has a dual Firewire800 connection to the CRMM housed in the VRR located in the cockpit.
Updated Solid State Recorder (USSR) for Tactical Data Recording
The updated solid state recorder (USSR) is a highly reliable, environmentally rugged, next generation net-centric data storage device, combining the functionality of a multi-channel video/audio/1553 recorder, mission data server and adjunct. It replaces legacy single-channel 8mm tape-based recorders as well as less capable, standalone solid state recorders (SSRs) in fixed or rotary winged, manned or unmanned aircraft.
