Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division today announced that its industry-leading VRD1 video management system (VMS) has been enhanced with the addition of a new packet capture software (PCAP) option that significantly expands the system’s ability to support deployed video-centric and network-centric systems. The new feature supports the capture and recording of Ethernet packets in the industry standard PCAP format and reduces size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) by eliminating the need for a separate Ethernet recorder. The VMS can perform Ethernet recording while simultaneously providing video switching, conversion, distribution, and recording. Designed to speed and simplify the integration of high definition (HD) video management on airborne and ground platforms, the VRD1 uniquely delivers integrated format conversion, compression, scaling, switching, recording and network distribution of many video types in a single compact rugged unit. For example, using PCAP recording, a VRD1 can capture Ethernet traffic onto removable solid state storage cartridges. The PCAP files can then be analyzed at a ground station using standard WireShark™ software, enabling network monitoring and troubleshooting. The VRD1 can also function as a network attached storage (NAS) or network file server (NFS). This capability enables Ethernet-based network clients to remotely access files stored on the VRD1 using standard networking protocols (such as NFS, CIFS, FTP or HTTP). Because the system can serve boot files to any network client, it also eliminates the need for additional memory storage in each network client.

The fully rugged VRD1 is ideal for use in demanding applications such as airborne or ground ISR, Command and Control, and airborne law enforcement that require multiple displays and cameras. It’s optimized for use with FLIR and L-3 Wescam turret-mounted camera systems and deployed Ethernet-based systems whose network clients require access to NAS, such as Flight Test Instrumentation (FTI) systems.

“With its new support for PCAP packet capture, our rugged VRD1 video management system delivers more capabilities and an expanded value proposition for system integrators and flight test instrumentation engineers,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. “It allows any camera input on a ground or airborne platform to be routed to any display or to internal solid-state storage. As modern ISR systems, using multiple cameras and displays, get increasingly complex, the VRD1 makes life simpler for system architects, letting them use one VMS with a single common API to get the video to the right place at the right time.”

The VRD1 can be combined with a wide range of Curtiss-Wright networking and video display products to create powerful deployed video management and data storage solutions. From rugged touchscreen LCD displays to miniature network switches, Curtiss-Wright offers the most comprehensive range of rugged system components for deployed applications.

About the VRD1
The VRD1 supports up to 18 video inputs in a mix of different types, including HD-SDI, RGB and DVI. These video inputs can then be easily routed to any of the VRD1’s 12 video outputs for real-time viewing on displays or to the VRD1’s H.264 video compression subsystem prior to recording on internal removable media or distribution to network client via Gigabit Ethernet.

The COTS Solid State Memory Advantage
Unlike competing systems that use proprietary memory devices, the VRD1 uses commercial off-the-shelf 2.5” SATA solid state drives (SSD) with storage capacities ranging from 128GB to 2TB, enabling memory to be scaled to meet present and future growth application needs. With SSD memory capacity doubling every 18 months or so, the system can easily and cost-effectively grow in response to the increased demands for storage in deployed systems. The SSDs, housed in Curtiss-Wright’s unique Removable Memory Cartridge (RMC), provide a 100K insertion cycle connector, far superior to the 50 insertions typically supported by standard SATA connectors. Weighing only 0.7 lb (317 g), each RMC is small enough to fit in a shirt or flight-suit pocket and yet rugged enough for transport. Error correction, wear-leveling, and bad block management are performed to ensure integrity for valuable video files.
