Paper Abstract

A Spaceflight Optical Disk Recorder (SODR) is being developed by NASA. A primary goal of the SODR program is to develop a modular SODR system architecture which can address a wide range of Mass Storage applications from spaceflight to ground based systems and a modular performance configurability from small capacity and low data rates to very large capacity and very high data rates. First application on EOS, a polar orbiting platform of the Space Station system, has been used to drive the SODR design. This established a range of performance requirements for the system. A modular architecture was then developed which allows an SODR system to be configured from a suite of modules to meet any storage capacity, I/O data rate and thruput rate in increments governed by each module's performance.
