The Digital Recording System - DRS2100E is a flexible RAID recording system employing high reliability hard drives and uniquely optimized controller electronics. The product series offers configurable performance to support a wide range of customer requirements.

The mirrored configuration of the DRS2100E supports continuous recording of data at 30+ Mbytes/sec for 40 minutes (72GB disks).  Reducing the data rate extends the record time by a proportional amount.  Longer recording time can be provided by configuring the unit with larger disks (144GB or 300GB).

The recorder has two removable disk drives which can be user-configured for redundancy (mirroring) or for double data rate (striping).  The removable media facilitates the secure handling of the recorded data and enables back-to-back mission support.  The DRS2100E not only satisfies field and laboratory recording requirements but also can provide significant support for the analysis of signals during playback.

The DRS2100E supports the off-loading of data to external tape drives (archive and restore) and supports the direct transfer of data to/from a PC workstation.  The recorder is controlled by a user-friendly front panel interface and remotely by an RS232 interface.  Network control is optionally provided.

A companion product to the DRS2100E is the DAS3000 which allows for the permanent archiving of data to an array of high-performance tape drives. The DRS2100E controls the archive and restore process.
