VMETRO has shipped data recording solutions to the Radar Systems Division of Telephonics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Griffon Corporation (NYSE:GFF), for the US Navy MH-60R Multi- Mode Automatic Radar Periscope Detection and Discriminator (ARPDD) program. The data recording solutions are based on VMETRO's Vortex Open Data Recording platform and SANbric rugged rotating media storage device. VMETRO's System Engineering Group developed a Shock Isolation Unit (SIU) for deployment of two SANbric storage devices as well as application-specific software. The SIU that was developed for this application was designed and tested to meet the shock and vibration profile supplied by the customer. The SIU holds two SANbric units each with maximum recording rate of 360MB/s and 1.8 terabytes of disk capacity.

"Our System Engineering Group rose to the challenge," says Tom Bohman, Vice President of Business Development for VMETRO, Inc., "and in a very short time developed and qualified a unique SIU that allowed long duration recording performance in the demanding helicopter environment using the sealed, low-cost, high-capacity rotating drives of the SANbric."

For additional information on the SANbric and its SIUs, please visit the VMETRO website at http://www.vmetro.com/ category3728.html.
