In 1999, Avionica introduced the miniQAR quick access recorder, the industry’s first ever miniature quick access recorder. Its solid-state reliability, 400 – hour recording capacity, and ease of installation changed the quick-access recording marketplace, and perhaps FOQA/FDM, forever.
Today, the next-generation miniQAR Mk II quick access recorder leads the industry in worldwide installations, and stores the data of many of the world’s most prestigious airlines, numerous branches of the military, and multinational corporations. It’s been imitated, but never duplicated. Here are some of the reason’s your fleet should be flying the miniQAR Mk II:
Cost Effective. Lowest cost of ownership, based on initial cost, ease of installation, and low maintenance.
Reliable Performance. Solid-state architecture has achieved a field proven MTBF of over 100,000 flight hours, saving valuable maintenance dollars. The miniQAR series of quick access recorders has been flying on commercial, military, and corporate aircraft worldwide since 1999 with over 3000 installed.
Flexible Recording. A variety of interface options are currently available. Record ARINC 717 (Harvard Biphase or Bipolar RZ), ARINC 717 with dual ARINC 429 channels, MIL-STD 1553 (dual redundant channels), or even IEEE RS-232!
Advanced Download Formats. A broad range of download options, including USB 2.0 (on the RSU-II or COTS Laptop/Desktop), onboard Ethernet, or Wireless (via SecureLINK) enables operators to customize download methods to best fit FOQA/FDM programs and schedules.
Easy to Install. Installs on most aircraft with minimal or no alterations. Many STC’s are available
High Capacity. Our 2 GB models record up to 3,000 flight hours of ARINC 717 data at 128 Words per Second!
