Wideband Systems (WSI) has been providing advanced signal recording products since 1998.

WSI manufactures the industry-leading Digital Recording System (DRS) product family. Optimized for the Telemetry and SIGINT markets, these recorders provide exceptionable bandwidth and scalability while maintaining strict compliance with the IRIG-106 Chapter 10 standard.

The following summarizes some of the capabilities and salient features of our Wideband Recorders, DRS8000 Series & DRS9300X products:

STIG and SCAP Compliance:
WSI supports the user in maintaining compliance. Applicable Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG) are implemented out of the box with site customizations supported. Any user-level account can control the recorder.

User Control:
WSI provides several methods of unit control. They are: front panel touch screen, attached monitor-keyboard-mouse¸ Windows Remote Desktop, and client application over a socket interface.

Field Installable Interface Boards:
When a user needs to add additional channels or channel types, this can be done easily by the user with no factory support required.

Power Reset:
Even when power is interrupted during a record, the system retains all data and setup information so that upon power being re-applied, the user just presses RECORD to continue.

Infinite Recording:
The user has the ability to record to either RAID, or to record to both RAIDs in an sequential format

AES Encrypted Data Sets:
The internal RAID media can be encrypted for security, locked for protection, “secure erased” to protect your program’s Information Assurance, and be password protected.

Secure Operating System:
All recorders provide a user interface hosted on Embedded Windows-10 Secure Host Baseline (SHB). Support is available to provide quarterly STIG updates in order to stay aligned with evolving security requirements.

Realtime Performance:
Realtime record and playback data is processed by high performance FPGAs and embedded LINUX. These data paths do not involve the Windows-10 CPU.

Automatic Time Selection:
The user does not need to know which IRIG signal type is present … Wideband provides automatic detection/decoding of IRIG-A, IRIG-B, or IRIG-G.

External Timing:
To support a range of external timing requirements, the DRS can accept an external 1 PPS signal and an external 10 MHz signal in addition to the standard IRIG-A, IRIG-B, or IRIG-G timing signals and optional GPS.

Internal Disk RAID:
All the WSI products are provided with dual-banked, internal disk arrays supporting mirrored, striped, or sequential formats.

File Naming:
The DRS software provides the flexibility to either use the default data and time format for CH10 files, or to change the name to a more “user friendly” format.

Data Recording:
The DRS recorder family will record or reproduce either to the internal RAID or to external media.

Chapter-10 Version Support:
The WSI recorders support a variety of IRIG-106 Chapter 10 versions for Record and Playback.

Recording Catalog:
Because Chapter-10 recorders can have many files on them, WSI provides the users a full catalog system to allow the user to quickly review, load, export, or play any Chapter-10 file on the system.

Triggered Operations:
Because many missions are pre-set to start at specific times, the DRS software provides the ability to set a specific IRIG time for a record … or a time for a session playback for mission simulation.

Full IRIG Time Code Support:
WSI offers the recording and reproduction of serial IRIG time, inclusive of YEAR, BCD, and SBS timefields.

Faster/Slower Playback:
When file playback is required to be done quickly, WSI offers the ability to playback 2X, 4X, 8X or 16X the original rate. Playback by 1/2X, 1/4X, 1/8, or 1/16X speeds are also included.

Bit Rate Agnostic:
No matter the PCM bit rate programmed, the DRS family is guaranteed to be able to capture your PCM signal, all the way to 40 Mbps … and play it back with no regard to the “operator-entered” PCM rate.

PCM Simulator:
Each PCM card has it’s own data simulator for more complete testing.

Channel Mapping:
WSI provides full flexibility to map the channel reproduction to ONE or MANY outputs.

Session Configuration:
Even when power OFF is planned or un-planned, any changes are saved and restored upon power-up.

Loop Playback:
The DRS software provides the user selectable fields so that start time and stop times of a file can be played back continuously.

Self Test:
BIT (Built-in Test) is performed automatically during every “power on” cycle or upon user request. BIT tests all data multiplexing, formatting, and memory locations so that dependable operation is always assured.

Batch Operation:
DRS software allows the user to set up “batch” operations for EXPORTING data files for “after hours” operations.

User Logs:
All critical mission commands and results are logged with time stamps for system accountability.

Monitor Mode:
DRS provides the user real-time data monitoring of all input channels, as well as data multiplexing and media utilization.
