The Galleon XSR Rugged sFPDP Recorder offers superior performance in an ultra-small form factor and is capable of capturing up to 8 Serial FPDP channels at link speeds up to 10.3125 Gbps. Additional Ethernet interfaces (1GBE and 10GBE provide additional sideband recording options)


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 Xeon processors, including the latest 11th Generation options, can be used and support up to 96GB of DDR4 SDRAM with ECC.


The XSR 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.


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 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 XSR sFPDP 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.
