FDR01 - Flight Data Recorder

The Flight Data Recorder (FDR) is designed to be installed onboard manned and unmanned aerial, terrestrial or maritime platforms in order to record all data from the aircraft's sensors, control commands (servos, ECU etc.), as well as control packets received from the Ground Control Station (GCS).

Capture High Rate of Sensor Data

 Record all data from the aircraft's sensors and control commands (servos, ECU etc.) sent through any serial interface at 115 200 bps. 

Save All Data without GCS Comms

Complete onboard data recording in case of a communications loss with the GCS.

Suitable for Manned and Unmanned Aerial, Terrestrial and Maritime Vehicles

The FDR01 is UAV Navigation small data recorder that enables the recording of telemetry from manned and unmanned systems of any kind.

High Memory Space

More than 4000 hours of data recording for standard UAV Navigation telemetry.

Rugged and Compact Design with Small Footprint

Designed in a compact 21.5 x 43.0 x 102.0 format conforming IP66 with a 1.3 W energy consumption. It includes fixing points for easy integration into the vehicle.

Intuitive Web Interface

Download logs easily from the web interface through its ethernet port, assuring high data transfer speeds.

The Flight Data Recorder (FDR) is a small and robust device that interfaces with any system, collecting critical information of the flight. The FDR is designed to be installed onboard manned and unmanned aerial, terrestrial or maritime platforms in order to record all data from the aircraft's sensors and control commands (servos, ECU, etc.).
During test flights of new aircraft or just by following a philosophy of continuous improvement, the data from previous flights is important for the future development of the aircraft. 

Furthermore, during BVLOS flights where the data link is lost, having a digital flight data recorder is the key to understand the behavior of the vehicle. The FDR ensures that any mission can be analyzed completely once it is completed. This includes complete onboard data recording in case of a loss of communications with the GCS, and even recording vital data to assist with reconstructing the circumstances surrounding an accident - before, during, and after the event.
Additionally, UAV Navigation’s FDR may also be used in marine or ground applications inside USV or UGV platforms. 
All of the experience acquired by UAV Navigation during its years of developing flight control solutions has made us understand all the required requirements that should be fulfilled in a data logger. 
UAV Navigation FDR is a compact RS-232 and serial bus logger, stored in a rugged aluminium black box enclosure and designed to conform to IP66 rating so it is waterproof and dirt proof.
Ethernet accessible web interface for easy data download and file management.
  • 64 GB memory for data circular buffer (4000+ hours of data recording for standard UAV Navigation telemetry).
