CORTEX RSR - Radio Signal Recorder for critical applications
The RSR is a digital recorder allowing the capture and reproduction of the RF or IF analog signal received at the antenna before any data processing. It is the key building block of a Telemetry Station to bring the highest critical data availability, especially when recording is not possible on-board. Data captured during the flight can be processed offline, with all the flexibility to adjust various settings in the receiver, the bit synchronizer or the decommutator, to squeeze each and every bit out of the recording, which is only possible when recording RF or IF.
- RF or IF Recording:

- 8.4" Screen:
- All Types of Signals:
- CH.10 Recodring Format:
- Pre-flight Station Check:
Record Telemetry Signal as close as possible to the antenna for Highest Data Availability
Intuitive GUI, Keyboard and Touchpad
RF or IF Telemetry, Wide Band Analog, PCM Streams, AGC & IRIG Time
All Recordings done according to Ch10 Standard
Long Loop Check Secure Station Settings while Replaying Previous Flight Records
