The Galleon 10GbE Rugged UDP Recorder and Playback system offers superior performance in an ultra-small form factor and can capture up to 8 channels of UDP traffic at 10GbE link speeds. It also provides high-precision synchronized playback. This capability can be added to either the Galleon XSR product family or the Galleon High-Performance Recorder. An FPGA-based XMC design allows for 100% data capture with no dropped packets, low processor involvement, and accurate time stamping for playback.


The 10GbE UDP Recorder is optimized for deployed applications such as unmanned systems, pods and ground vehicles. Rugged LC Duplex or expanded beam form connectors for all interfaces ensure reliable operation in all conditions. The design is Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) optimized. A selection of Xeon processors, including the latest 11th generation, with up to 96GB SDRAM supporting ECC, is available to manage the command and control of UDP Recorder.


Removable Data Modules (RDMs) enable short ground times for airborne applications and instant access to recorded data in the ground access system without the need to download the recorded data over a slow drain interface. Industry-standard solid-state drives are used to benefit from the ever-increasing storage densities and cost reductions as the technology evolves. The 10GbE UDP recorder has a simple C++ API for remote control over a separate Gigabit Ethernet connection.


Optional FIPS 140-2 and AES-256 hardware encryption provides a high level of data security with flexible key management options, including physical key tokens through front panel key loading port and remote loading over a secure network connection. The 10GbE UDP Recorder is designed to meet the most severe environmental conditions without compromising on functionality and performance. Galleon Embedded Computing’s quality management system is certified to Aerospace Standard AS/EN 9100 and ISO 9001.
