Ampex Upgrades & Enhances Key Mission Recorder for 4th Gen Fixed Wing Platform Multimillion Dollar Contract

(July 2022) Ampex Data Systems, a division of Delta Information Systems, upgrades and enhances a key mission recorder for a 4th generation fixed-wing platform under a multimillion-dollar contract.

Ampex, a technology leader and small business innovator in rugged storage and compute solutions for aerospace and defense, announced it was awarded a multimillion-dollar contract from a leading government defense agency to design and develop a SWaP-C optimized mission recorder with encrypted crash survivable capabilities for a 4th gen, fast-mover, fixed wing platform. The contract was received in July 2022 and has an estimated lifetime value of approximately $20 million which is expected to be delivered over the next year.

Why It Matters

As the volume of data captured by airborne platforms continues to rapidly increase, data management and data protection in theater is key to mission success and allowing assurance of mission completion and necessary platform performance data.

“This award is another example of how much our customers trust our engineering, products, and support for many critical defense platforms,” said Nick Duran, Ampex Vice President and Director of Sales. “Full spectrum data management and delivering the most innovative, trustworthy, and essential technologies is what we do well to support the mission.”
