Mustang Technology Group, LP, presents an innovative, modular FPGA-based data recording system which offers radical improvements over current offerings for tactical data recorders. The FPGA-based approach delivers an initial order of magnitude increase in capability and allows for frequent, drop-in upgrades in storage capacity and performance as commercial technology advances. The modular daughter-card approach allows low-cost development per sensor interface for legacy and future systems as well as ground processing platforms. The FPGA"s inherent flexibility allows implementation of current and future interfaces and standards, such as STANAG-4575, gigabit Ethernet, RS-422, SATA, and PCI Express. By incorporating the latest advanced commercial technologies and a modular mechanical design we significantly reduce the SWaP profile and allow for rapid, low-cost customization of the data recorder on a per-sensor/system basis. Finally, all these benefits are delivered with an order of magnitude decrease in cost compared to current tactical data recorders.
