Pentek's Talon RF/IF signal recording and playback system Model RTR 2727 is a rugged, portable recorder targeted at military and aerospace applications.

The system features recording and playback of IF signals up to 700MHz with signal bandwidths to 200MHz. It can be configured with 500MHz 12bit A/Ds or 400MHz 14bit A/Ds and an 800MHz 16bit D/A. Pentek's SystemFlow software allows turnkey operation through a graphical user interface (GUI), while the SystemFlow application programming interface (API) allows easy integration of the recording software into custom applications.

At the heart of the recorder are the Pentek Cobalt Series Virtex-6 software radio boards featuring A/D and D/A converters, DDCs (digital down-converters), DUCs (digital up-converters), and FPGA IP. This architecture allows the system engineer to take full advantage of the latest technology in a turnkey solution. Optional GPS time and position stamping captures this critical signal information within the recording.

The RTR 2727 has a portable, lightweight chassis with up to eight hot-swap solid state drives (SSDs), front panel USB ports and I/O connections on the side panel. Its extremely rugged 100 per cent aluminium alloy case is reinforced with shock absorbing rubber corners and an impact-resistant protective screen.

Shock- and vibration-resistant solid-state drives (SSD) with combined capacity to 3.8TB make the RTR 2727 a reliable, portable field instrument. By using hot swappable SSDs, the recorders exhibit high immunity to shock and vibration for ground vehicles, ships and aircraft. The drive array capacity can be as large as 3.8TB and supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5, or 6.
