FAERITO® Digital Video Recorder Suite

Product Information


The FAERITO Digital Flight Recorder System (DFRS) is a multi-functional unit that supports audio, video, and flight data recording.

The FAERITO DFRS has been designed and certified to EUROCAE ED-112 and RTCA DO-160E standards for both commercial and military aircraft requirements.

The DFRS can be configured as a standalone flight recorder that contains an 8GB Crash Survivable Memory Unit (CSMU) or it can be integrated with the Cockpit Control Panel, Cockpit Video Cameras, Video Multiplexer, and Removable Memory Units (RMUs).

The DFRS retains the most recent eight (8) hours of video data and up to 25 hours of data and audio recording.

The DFRS supports a variety of I/O interfaces, including RS232, RS422, and MIL-STD-1553, along with a full range of analog and discrete inputs.

The DFRS is configured with an integral Underwater Locator Beacon (ULB) that is activated when submerged in water. The ULB is mounted to the DFRS to easily locate the CSMU, which contains the Crash Survivable Memory.
