HAYWARD, Calif. Airbus Defense and Space officials selected Ampex Data Systems, a division of Delta Information Systems Inc., to supply TuffServ222 (TS222) Multichannel Video Recorders, in support of the Government of Canada?s Fixed-Wing Search and Rescue Aircraft Replacement (FWSAR) project.
The CC-295 variant of the Airbus C-295 will be the new FWSAR aircraft for the Royal Canadian air force, replacing the CC-115 Buffalo and the legacy CC-130H Hercules fleets. The turbo-prop C-295 is in use in 28 countries, mostly for military transport, but also for maritime/overland surveillance and anti-submarine warfare.
Ampex’s TS222 Video Recorder records, encodes, reproduces and streams SD & HD-SDI video with embedded metadata. The TS222 Video Recording System is designed to support simultaneous recording, reproduction, and streaming of both high-definition and standard-definition video. For this project, the TS222 will include capabilities such as multiple input and output video interfaces, additional video channels, and slow-motion replay at different speeds.
