The REVO 250LW CVFDR is designed for the light aircraft, unmanned aircraft and emerging Advanced Air Mobility (eVTOL) industry. Able to exceed EUROCAE ED-155 and meet all stringent ED-112A crash survivability requirements for Flight Data Recorders and Cockpit Voice Recorders when fitted without an underwater locator beacon for ultra-low SWaP (size, weight and power) at a price point of an ED-155 recorder.

With standard 16 gigabyte storage, the recording durations vastly exceed the ED-112A standards of 25 hours for data and audio.

Interfaces include:
  • ARINC717 (auto rate detection up to 2,048 wps)
  • ARINC429 (4 channels, automatic rate)
  • ARINC825 (dual or single channel)
  • RS422/485 (dual or single channel)
  • 10/100 Ethernet (2 ports) (e.g. for video recording or telemetry/maintenance interfaces)
  • 4 channel ED-112A compliant high quality audio

No proprietary GSE tools are required for download with an internal web server able to connect to a standard portable computer. A standard Internal TPM 2.0 security chip is able to enhance cyber security when connected to other ethernet based aircraft systems. Optional recording encryption utilizes asymmetric (RSA-2048) or symmetric (AES-256) algorithms.

Compared with a modern and already lightweight Part 23 and Part 25 CVFDR (equipped with ULB), the AAM recorder further reduces the weight and volume by over 50% while still meeting the challenging ED-112A crash survival requirements.
