Key Features

The SENTRY Cockpit Voice & Flight Data Recorder (CVFDR) was designed by combining standard features of existing CVFDRs with a new approach. Using a patent-pending, innovative memory insulation technique, the SENTRY offers a small size, low weight, and less power consumption than traditional CVFDRs in a modular and flexible architecture. This “software free” recorder allows for aircraft specific configurations as well as the addition of creative and useful expansion capabilities.

Available in titanium, the SENTRY meets or exceeds all requirements of ED-112A and qualifies for DO-160G environmental and power requirements. The rugged enclosure is ideal for airborne operational environments including unmanned, commercial, military, fixed-wing, and rotary-wing aircraft.

SENTRY includes a range of aircraft interfaces including:

  • ARINC-717 and ARINC-429 (auto detection)
  • Ethernet
  • RS-422/485
  • Analog and discrete sensor inputs
  • Data Link recording
  • Four high or low fidelity audio channels (configurable)
  • Rotor speed input

Expansion of SENTRY’s capabilities includes the acquisition functions designed for the FDS Modular Acquisition Unit (MAU). This capability converts the SENTRY into a Data Acquisition and Crash Recorder System, and more.
