The compact, self-contained Avalon AE9000-100 SIGINT Disk Recorder is designed to record, reproduce and export up to
two channels of wideband signals at a total bandwidth of up to 100 MHz.
The recording channel can be configured to record either an IF or a baseband (video) signal.
Two user-selectable recording resolutions are offered: 8-bits for routine data collection tasks and 16-bits for high-resolution applications.
User-selectable IFs include 160, 140, 70 and 21.4 MHz. Four user-selectable recording bandwidths are supported: 100, 50, 25 and 12.5 MHz.
The unit’s hot-swappable Disk Crate (SSD standard) can store up to 40 hours of mission data in 1 Ch x 25 MHz (8-bit) recording rates.
Record times are proportionally longer or shorter at different resolutions or bandwidths.
The primary means of local control is by means of a monitor, mouse and keyboard attached to the recorder’s rear panel.
The unit can also be controlled remotely.
