The Galleon XSR Rugged Gigabit Ethernet Recorder offers superior performance in a small form factor and is capable of capturing data from up to 13 separate Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. Each Gigabit Ethernet interface can be recorded at full speed storing UDP or TCP payload data.


The design concept of XSR is based on the use of COTS Open Architecture modules. This enables the XSR to keep pace with increasing technology advancement and provides a key mitigation strategy for Obsolescence Management, which helps to protect the user’s design for 10 years or more.


Intel Core i7 and Xeon processor options, including the latest 9th generation, are supported with up to 96GB SDRAM supporting ECC.


The XSR is optimized for deployed applications such as unmanned systems, pods and ground vehicles. Rugged miniature 38999 connectors for all interfaces ensure reliable operation in all conditions. The design is Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) optimized.


Removable Data Modules (XSR RDMs) enables 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 recorder has a simple C++ API for remote control over a Gigabit Ethernet connection. Optional FIPS 140-2 and AES 256-bit hardware encryption provides a high level of data security with flexible key loading options, including physical key tokens through front panel key loading port and remote loading over a secure network connection.


Galleon Embedded Computing’s quality management system is certified to Aerospace Standard AS/EN 9100 and ISO 9001.
