The Compact Network Storage 4-slot (CNS4) is a conduction cooled, high-performance data recorder with scalable storage and encryption options making it ideal for capturing critical data in a harsh environment. Curtiss-Wright’s Rugged Universal Capture Card (RUCC) provides data recording capabilities for a wide range of protocols such as Serial FPDP (sFPDP), GbE and 10 GbE. The CNS4 can support up to 8 TB of removable solid state storage. The modular design consists of a full ATR Chassis and up to four Flash Storage Modules (FSM-C). These FSM-C modules plug into the CNS4 backplane and are housed behind an easy-to-open access door and are easily removable with tool-less wedgelocks. This rugged data recorder is designed for use in a broad range of both manned and unmanned ground, air, and sea vehicles. 

Flexible I/O - 1 GbE / 10 GbE / sFPDP 

The CNS4 has been designed from the ground up to support a wide range of I/O inputs such as sFPDP, GbE, 10 GbE and other legacy protocols. 

Incorporating Curtiss-Wright’s RUCC the CNS4 can be used to capture and record sFPDP data, GbE and 10 GbE. With four ports, the RUCC can capture sFPDP, GbE, and 10 GbE from sensors like radars, sonars, and FLIR. The RUCC also time-stamps each packet of data for later analysis or playback. 

CNS4 also has a 3U VPX™ slot for additional I/O, allowing any type of XMC I/O card can be integrated in the CNS4.
