New generations of electro-optical sensor suites can deliver images at pixel rates in the Gb/S rate. Such rates are well past the ability of moving media recorders. Concomitantly, the explosion of COTS memory chips has made solid state recorders (SSR) an economic and technical reality. This paper will review approaches to implementing multi-GByte SSRs, operating at write rates up to 10Gb/S. Considered will be appropriate COTS memory devices, nonvolatility issues, packaging, architecture to implement such operationally desirable features as in-flight editing, downlinking, quick- look and the impact of new approaches to error management and data compression. Future directions of recce SSRs are considered.
