ANDOVER, Mass. – Mercury Systems Inc. in Andover, Mass., Introduces the RH3480 radiation tolerant solid-state data logger (SSDR) for high radiation intensity space and terrestrial applications, including low Earth orbit satellites (LEO ), high altitude aircraft, missiles, launchers and scientific missions.

Featuring horizontal error correction, industrial-grade flash memory and a fault-tolerant design, the RH3480 offers long-term data integrity to match the operational lifespan of a satellite or to the lifespan of a space mission.

“As data from satellites becomes more complex and the size of satellite designs gets smaller, we need compact and reliable solutions to store and transmit large amounts of data quickly and efficiently,” says Tom Smelker, vice president and general manager of Mercury Data.

“Our line of solid-state data loggers, specially designed to meet the demand for agile, radiation-tolerant storage devices rugged enough for space applications,” said Smelker.

Mercury’s latest modular form factor is small and supports high data capacity. Its low power consumption enables the processing and storage of digital data from orbiting sensors to transfer the data.
