Model: Fortress DAFR


Curtiss Wright

Part Number :



  • Fortress DAFR provides a complete aircraft recording solution supporting the recording of mandatory parametric flight data as well as additional data from different interfaces
  • Combined voice, data, datalink and image recording (stand-alone options available)
  • DAFR attaches directly to an airframe to eliminate the need for heavy mounts and equipment racks/trays
  • Enhanced data acquisition support including direct interface to a tri-axial accelerometer
  • The Fortress DAFR is supported by dedicated recorder independent power supply (RIPS), cockpit area microphone (CAM), cockpit area camera (CAC) and cockpit control unit (CCU)
  • Supporting dual recorder installations, the CCU enables data and image distribution to two installed Fortress DAFR recorders through an integrated Ethernet switch.
  • ED-112A compliant
  • Designed to meet all current and possible future regulations
