The Redwire Space Data Acquisition and Recovery System (DARS) is a stand-alone, high speed, high-capacity data capture and return. DARS records 128 GB of 4K UHD video or any other high-speed data (160 Mbps) over USB in a miniature recoverable capsule.
Redwire DARS technology features a robust data recovery capsule that is vacuum compatible, and tolerant to shock and vibration environments. A DARS unit includes GPS, Iridium, and Lo-Ra communications, on-board data storage, IMU, and other sensors, such as temperature and pressure.
Self-powered and controlled, the DARS solution does not require external power or commanding for operation and offers a long battery life (1 month prior to start of the mission, and 1-month post-release).
Engineered for water recovery, DARS offers long range (100 km) direct data transmission via Lo-Ra, as well as global communication via the Iridium constellation. DSS video camera and lighting system options are available.
DARS is designed to support a variety of aerospace systems and operational or test environments, such as:
- HIAD Release
- LV Core Stage
- LV Upper Stage
- Military Aviation
- LV Interstage Adapters
- LV Payload Fairings
- Test Vehicles
- Civil Aviation
Each unit includes:
- GPS receiver
- 3 Axis accelerometer
- 3 Axis gyros
- 3 Axis magnetometers
- LoRa transceiver for command and telemetry
- Polyurethane capsule
