RT Crash-Survivable Memory Unit  image

SRVIVR Cockpit Voice & Flight Data Recorder (CVFDR) combines the latest in recorder technology with the benefit of reduced weight, compact size, and operational flexibility. The combination of increased functionality, reduced size and weight, and precise data allows you to realize true cost savings over heavier and less-reliable CVFDRs.  It also increases the volume available in the aircraft for more productive uses and provides the information you need to improve the operational efficiency of your fleet.

SRVIVR includes survivability to the highest industry standards, EUROCAE ED-112, ensuring retrieval of data even in the event of a fire.  Available as a CVR, FDR, or combination recorder, SRVIVR offers a range of avionics interfaces enabling direct communications with a variety of aircraft systems, including glass cockpits, potentially eliminating the need for a separate Flight Data Acquisition Unit (FDAU).  It is also software configurable providing customization to support your specific aircraft data and audio requirements.

SRVIVR also It also provides dual isolated power bus inputs allowing the addition of secondary power to support extended recording in the case of primary power loss.
