Missile Data Acquisition and Recording Unit

Missile Data Acquisition and Recording Unit

Data Recorder Systems

The system is developed for the missile platforms to acquire and record the digital data provided by the platform’s avionics and analog data provided by the measurement sensors and transmits the data via platform’s datalink. MIDASU is adaptable to the platforms requiring new interfaces by means of it’s modular structure seamlessly and cost effectively. MIDASU has a rugged Data Storage Unit which collects valuable data for further engineering studies without being damaged by hit impact.

MIDASU also provides a service software to the user for loading the pre-flight configuration and reading the stored data within the DSU.
