SferiRec DCR

Deployable Crash Recorder

Automatic deployable flight recorder models for larger aircrafts.
The deployable Recorder Beacon Airfoil (RBA) combines the crash protected, solid state CPM Memory Module and three emergency locator transmitters with antennas in one device.

The Airfoil Release Unit (ARU), on which the RBA is mounted, is usually installed on the outside of the aircraft’s rear fuselage. The ARU comprises the electrical and pyrotechnical components to release the airfoil in a crash situation or after command of the pilot.
