Paper Abstract

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems for reconnaissance and flight instrumentation applications are being developed and deployed on a variety of airborne platforms. Multiple asynchronous radar data channels, data formatting, channel time-stamping, file management and control are but a few of the requirements that mandate a sophisticated data recording device suitable for an airborne environment. This paper describes a solid-state recording architecture designed to meet these requirements. Discussions of the implementation of high-speed continuous multi-channel data recording, airborne and ground data interface technologies, data channel synchronization and general solid-state recorder device features are provided.
