The SENTRY Flight Data Recorder (FDR) was designed by combining standard features of existing FDRs with a new approach. Using a patent-pending, innovative memory insulation technique, the SENTRY offers a small size, low weight, and less power consumption than traditional FDRs in a modular and flexible architecture. This “software free” recorder allows for aircraft specific configurations as well as the addition of creative and useful expansion capabilities.
