Spectral Systems Selects VMETRO's 3.6 GB/s Data Recording System

2/24/2005 - VMETRO, a premium provider of embedded, real-time boards and sub-systems based on open standards like VME, PCI, cPCI and RACEway, announced that it has received a large order from Spectral Systems Inc. of Dayton, Ohio, for a high-performance airborne recording system. This wideband data collection and recording system is part of a system developed by Spectral Systems to meet high-priority Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) requirements. It is comprised of 16 VMETRO modular data recorders with associated hardware and is clustered together via a Fibre Channel-based storage area network (SAN).

"An enabling feature for this application was the capability of VMETRO data recorders to utilize flexible Fibre Channel SAN technology," said Tom Bohman, VMETRO's vice president of Business Development. "This allowed us to design a system where all of the data recorders simultaneously share a single mass storage device without adversely affecting performance."

"We chose VMETRO because they were the only vendor that could provide a standard commercial off the shelf product with the I/O and bandwidth required by our leading-edge collection system application," said Glen Niemeier, program manager at Spectral Systems.

VMETRO offers products and services that enable clients to build superior high-end digital processing, recording and sensor I/O systems for their customers, on time! The products are based on open standards like VXS, VME, PCI, cPCI and RACEway. Founded in 1986 in Oslo, Norway, and in the U.S. since 1987, VMETRO is the world's largest manufacturer of bus analyzers for standard buses such as VME and PCI. VMETRO also offers an extensive line of high-performance signal processing solutions, real-time data recorders, PMC I/O controllers and modules for real-time data processing, acquisition and networking. VMETRO merged with Transtech DSP Ltd (High Wycombe, U.K.) Oct. 1, 2004, adding a powerful range of signal processing products to the VMETRO product range.
