Lockheed Martin Voices Its Approval Of L-3 Electrodynamics Euro Hawk Add-In

Euro Hawk UAV (LMC) L-3 Electrodynamics (L-3 EDI), a division of L-3 Communications, has supplied its SRVIVR Cockpit Voice Flight Data Recorder (CVFDR) to Northrop Grumman for integration on its Euro Hawk variant of the RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aircraft system.

The Euro Hawk will serve as part of the German Air Force's high altitude long endurance (HALE) surveillance and reconnaissance system. The SRVIVR family of small and lightweight CVFDRs was designed to meet or exceed the requirements of EUROCAE ED-112, which defines the minimum operational performance specifications for crash protected airborne recorder systems. In addition to its robust design, SRVIVR is the smallest and lightest crash recorder in use today weighing as little as 4.5 lbs.
