“As data from satellites advances in complexity and the sizes of satellite designs become smaller and smaller, we need trusted, compact solutions to store and transmit large amounts of data quickly and efficiently,” said Tom Smelker, vice president and general manager, Mercury Data. “Our new line of solid-state data recorders, purpose-built to answer the demand for agile, radiation-tolerant storage devices rugged enough for space applications, represent Mercury’s commitment to delivering the technologies of tomorrow today for critical missions on Earth and beyond.”
Featuring horizontal error correction, industrial-grade flash memory and a fault-tolerant design, the RH3480 provides long-term data integrity to match the operational life of a satellite or life of a mission. Mercury’s latest modular form factor is significantly smaller than typical SSDRs and supports a higher data capacity, providing users with ease of integration and flexibility in their applications. The RH3480’s proven reliability in radiation-intensive environments and low power consumption enables on-orbit sensor digital data processing and storage to transfer significantly more data in less time, enabling real-time decision-making.
