Data recorder small enough for onboard drones

It can be a challenging job collecting UAV flight data, especially with typical data recorders and sensors that add sizeable mass and volume. DTS ultra-small SLICE MICRO and NANO data recorders are rugged and designed to embed directly in the test article - even small drones.

Modular in design, the NANO has a footprint of just 26x31mm. The standalone systems include a microprocessor, excitation, full signal conditioning and sample up to 500,000sps/channel.

SLICE can record for hours or even days and direct-writes data to 16GB flash memory. SLICE delivers precision shock and vibration data in low and high temperatures, high altitudes and low pressure environments (meets MIL-STD-810-E) and is 500g shock rated with a 5,000g option available.

Suitable for a variety of applications, SLICE supports a full range of external sensors including accelerometers (piezoresistive & piezoelectric IEPE), strain gauges, load cells, as well as pressure, angular rate, voltage and temperature sensors. Integrated sensors are also available for an all-in-one solution.
